Is Trump following Obama's footsteps?

New York [USA], Nov. 8 : Comparing incumbent US President Barack Obama with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump may look bizarre to any American. However, the duo indeed has something in common from a political perspective.

Trump has been reckless with his words in many of his speeches, leading many to believe that racism is at the core of his campaign while Obama being the first elected black President in the US history stands quite opposite to Trump's assertion so far.

But what Trump has said is on the same issues and frames that Obama raised in 2008 and 2012. The Republican nominee has, however, changed the story lines, writes the New York Times.
