To remove all trailing and leading whitespace in a string, we can use the method strip() in String class that gets rid of both these whitespaces. You can use it as follows:
>>> ' Hello People '.strip() 'Hello People'
If you only want to remove leading or trailing whitespace use lstrip() or rstrip() respectively.
>>> ' Hello People'.lstrip() 'Hello People' >>> 'Hello People '.rstrip() 'Hello People'
