    During a fundraiser, where the controversial announcement was made, Obama shared his own reflections on his presidency and said that he would have allowed Trump to take credit for his healthcare program if it meant saving it from being repealed.

    As Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez announced Obama at a fundraiser in Beverly Hills, he called him "the real president of the United States." Obama himself criticized the excessive popularity of his image.

    Perez' comment did not go unnoticed by social media users, leaving Twitter divided, as many people supported his sentiment.

    While some Twitter users scolded Perez, claiming that the Democrats are living in the past and can't accept their loss in the presidential election.

    Some even went so far as to suggest that "the real US president" should be Hilary Clinton, if that were the case.

    Several Twitterians noted that claiming someone is a "real president" doesn't actually make him or her the real POTUS.
