Hillary Clinton's campaign slogan may be "stronger together" but a book claims her relationship with President Barack Obama may be more fractured than it seems.

Obama has made multiple campaign stops for Clinton during her race to win the 2016 presidential election, even once claiming that it would be a "personal insult" to his legacy if black voters don't support the 2016 presidential candidate.

However book recently released on paperback titled "Fracture: Barack Obama, the Clintons, and the Racial Divide" details how their "varied approaches to the race issue" has created a "complicated relationship" between the powerhouse Democratic families.
