Obama Warns Of Divisive Social Media Use During Interview With Prince Harry (Doesn’t Mention Trump)

NBC News reports:

In his first interview since leaving the White House in January, former President Barack Obama told Britain’s Prince Harry that the transition out of public office left him with a sense of ‘”serenity.”

In the interview, which was light on political substance, Obama told listeners to BBC Radio’s flagship morning news program, Today, that the end of his administration brought a sense of satisfaction “mixed with all the work that was still undone and concerns about how the country moves forward.”

In the interview Obama also warned of the dangers of social media. He did not mention his successor by name, but called on people in government to be careful in their use of platforms like Twitter.

“One of the dangers of the internet is that people can have entirely different realities. They can be cocooned in information that reinforces their current biases,” he said.
