The US President Barack Obama claimed that the whole world is envious of the United States, as America has all the trumps in hand in order to secure its dominance in the XXI century.
Obama explained in an interview on Fox News that unsympathetic people sometimes do not realize all the advantages of life in the US. "America's got the best cards. We are the envy of the world. We have the most powerful military on earth, by a mile. Our economy right now, is stronger than any other advanced economy," he insisted. "We have the best workers, we have the best universities. We are the most innovative. We have the most advanced scientific community. We have an incredibly diverse and talented population," the President asserted. Speaking about healthcare system reform, Obama noted that "85 percent of people get healthcare through their jobs. They don't want big change on them. It wasn't necessarily because there was some corruption, or venality, or that people were unresponsive to democracy. People disagree". According to him, the current century "can be our century, just like the 20th century was, as long as we don't tear each other apart, because our politics value sensationalism or conflict, over cooperation, and we don't have the ability to compromise. And if we get that part right, nobody can stop us," Obama concluded.
