London, May 19 (ANI): In an impassioned letter to the President of an African relief fundraising group, US President Obama’s former pastor has written that he is considered “toxic” by the Obama administration, and accused the US President of “throwing him under the bus”.
The embittered pastor Jeremiah Wright, made the statements in relation to his pleas to the Obama administration to release frozen funds for earthquake ravaged Haiti, which the pastor believes will be ignored in all likelihood.
Wright is known for shooting off his mouth and has made absurd claims earlier when at a National Press Club appearance in April 2008, he said that the US government could plant AIDS in the black community, praised Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and suggested Obama was putting his pastor at arm”s length for political purposes while privately agreeing with him, The Telegraph reports.
Following these remarks Obama had condemned Wright as a “divisive and destructive” man and had severed all ties with him. (ANI)
