President Obama thinks he would've won a third term, but Donald Trump doesn't agree. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
"President Barack Obama may be convinced he could have bested Donald Trump in a race to the White House, but the president-elect says “no way!”
Trump took to Twitter Monday to shoot down Obama’s claim that he could have beaten the Republican candidate in a head-to-head race had the president not been prohibited by law from running for a third term.
Obama told his former senior advisor, David Axelrod, on his podcast, “The Axe Files,” that he believes his vision of a “tolerant and diverse and open” America could have garnered enough votes for yet another victory.
“I’m confident that if … I had run again and articulated it, I think I could’ve mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it,” Obama said.
Trump thinks not and claims the president had too much negative baggage for another win. “I say NO WAY,” Trump tweeted, adding: “jobs leaving, ISIS, OCare, etc.”
