Obama seems to be very confident about not having Trump in the White House. Does he know something we don’t know?
President Barack Obama said during a Tuesday press conference that he doubts Donald Trump will succeed him in the White House because ‘I have a lot of faith in the American people, and I think they recognize that being president is a serious job.’
Trump fired back hours later in coastal South Carolina, telling an overflow crowd that Obama ‘has done such a bad job! He has set us back so far. And for him to say that actually is a great compliment.’
Obama told reporters in California that he would ‘leave it to you to speculate how this whole race is gonna go. I continue to believe that Mr. Trump will not be president.’
‘It’s not hosting a talk show, or a reality show, it’s not promotion, it’s not marketing – it’s hard,’ he said of the U.S. presidency. ‘And a lot of people count on us getting it right.’
‘And it’s not a matter of pandering and doing whatever will get you in the news on a given day.’
Obama assessed both the Democratic and Republican ends of the race in response to questions posed to him at a California press conference at the conclusion of the first-ever Association of Southeast Asian Nations conference on U.S. soil.
