The Daily Show host Trevor Noah got to interview the outgoing United States president and the duo discussed topics such as political and racial issues, including Obamacare.

The South African comedian conducted the interview at the White House and it was aired on Monday evening in the US.

President Obama said, “The challenge we face today when it comes to race is rarely the overt, Klansman-style racism. It typically has more to do with the fact that people have got other stuff they want to talk about, and it's sort of uncomfortable . . . You're not talking about cut-and-dried racist behaviour, but rather the complex ways in which society is working these issues through,” he told Noah.

Obama also couldn’t keep mum about his post-presidency plans.

“I don't anticipate that I suddenly just vanish. But I think it is important to give the incoming administration their space . . . But there may be occasions, where I might have to say something.”

Noah, Mzansi’s “golden boy”, released a book entitled Born a Crime last month. Big up, Trev!
