President Obama said in a radio interview airing on Monday that Donald J. Trump, a leading contender for the Republican presidential nomination, is exploiting the resentment and anxieties of working-class men to boost his campaign. Mr. Obama also argued that some of the scorn directed at him personally stems from the fact that he is the first African-American to hold the White House.

Dr. MLK also preached in a time when people with almost any colour was discriminated against, especially black people, who couldn't even eat in the same building as a white person.
Obama lives in a post MLK era, and racism is STILL quite evident, it's not his fault he was born black, his colour didn't vote him in, but the speculation still stands people who didn't vote for him, I can bet a big chunk didn't do so because of the colour of his skin.
