In Klein’s book, called ‘The Amateur’, he claimed that Mrs Obama prepared the divorce papers to separate from the President in 2000 following his disastrous attempt to win a House seat in Chicago. After he lost miserably the future First Lady was supposedly disgusted that her husband had put at risk their ‘stable and secure future’. The book claims their marriage - in its eighth year at the time - was ‘on the rocks’ with Mr Obama so depressed some of his friends feared he was suicidal. In the end Mr Obama ran for a Senate seat in Illinois and won it in, assuming office in 2005 and restoring her faith in him. Among the other claims in Klein’s book are that Bill Clinton branded Mr Obama an ‘amateur’, which was denied by the former President.

- The President also spent a portion of his speech at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner in April 2011 taking jabs at Trump.
- He said: ‘Now, I know that he’s taken some flak lately, but no one is happier, no one is prouder to put this birth certificate matter to rest than the Donald.
- ‘And that’s because he can finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter - like, did we fake the moon landing? What really happened in Roswell? And where are Biggie and Tupac?’
Obama’s jabs are actually funny :)
