This MAJOR Difference Between Trump and Obama’s SOTU Speech Speaks VOLUMES

Clearly, Trump is a much different president than Obama, but besides his stronger “America first” rhetoric, there’s one stark difference between their State of the Union speeches that shows who the true leader is.

During Trump’s speech last night, he placed a huge emphasis on “we” versus “I,” a major contrast to narcissistic Obama who often did just the opposite during his SOTU speeches.

From Fox News

President Trump talked long on Tuesday night, “the third-longest State of the Union in the past 50 years, according to The New York Times. But he rarely talked about himself — unlike his predecessor.

President Obama’s first State of the Union speech in 2010 featured the president saying some version of “I” or “me” nearly 100 times. That was nearly four times more than Trump managed — 98 personal references to a mere 26.

For all the media have attacked Trump about his ego, it was Obama who earned regular criticism for being self-referential in his speeches. His first 41 speeches showed this tendency was off the charts — mentioning himself nearly 1,200 times – 1,198 to be exact.

Obama’s 2010 speech was littered with “I” or a contraction in some form or another — 88 times, with another 10 “me.” Here’s a typical example: “But when I ran for president, I promised I wouldn’t just do what was popular, I would do what was necessary.” That’s four in one sentence. Trump mustered two in one sentence just once. Obama managed several sentences with multiple “I” comments.

Journalists have been quick to skewer Trump over his ego. Vanity Fair recently asked, “WILL TRUMP’S BRUISED EGO LAUNCH A NUCLEAR WAR?” Politico said Trump’s ego made him prey for Putin. And though former interim DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile said Obama had a “titanic ego,” that theme was rare in media.

But looking at the numbers, in the battle of egos, apparently Obama’s trumps even Trump’s.
