The US is still uncomfortable with powerful women, says Barack Obama

United States President Barack Obama on Sunday said America has not yet been able to elect a women president because it was not comfortable with powerful women.

The outgoing president, who is currently endorsing Clinton, was speaking to a group of donors in New York.
