Barack Hussein Obama II (born 4 August 1961) was president of the United States from 2009 to 2017.
The first mixed race president, often described as Black, he was extremely popular among politically correct correct supporters before being elected, and was quickly given the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize, after being president for only nine months.
Obama ordered military involvement in Libya in opposition to Muammar Gaddafi, who was killed by NATO-assisted forces, contributing to the civil war in Libya and mass immigration from and through Libya to Europe.
He withdrew American forces from Iraq, but supported the uprising in Syria, contributing to the Syrian Civil War, the rise of ISIS, the invasion of Iraq by ISIS from Syria, and mass immigration from and through Syria and Iraq to Europe.
Despite sometimes extreme leftist expectations when he was elected, after an initial positive jump in views on race relations, these views steadily became more negative during his presidency. See also Political spectrum: Increasing polarization.
