The difference between Trumps and Obamas in three photos


What is the difference between Donald Trump and Barack Obama? Well, Trump is the incumbent US president while Obama left office in 2016.

Another difference is that while Obama is black and gentlemanly, Trump is white and can at times be, well, never mind.

But beyond that, it seems the Trumps treat visitors differently from the Obamas.

On Monday night, President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump hosted President Uhuru Kenyatta and First Lady Margaret Kenyatta at the White House.

SANDWICHED 

But how they posed for the photo op was different from how President Obama and then First Lady Michelle Obama posed when they hosted the Kenyattas at the White house in  September 2014.

While the Obamas had their guests sandwiched between them, for Trump, it was the was the other way round.

The Obamas also accorded the Trumps similar treatment after the latter won presidency in America.
