President Obama is understood to be against the idea of using doubles himself because the tactic is generally associated with rulers including Saddam Hussein, Kim Jong-il of North Korea, Stalin and Adolf Hitler.

Mr Ilham has already become famous in the president’s former home town of Jakarta and a drug company has also cast him in a commercial showing him dressed as President Obama.
