On Sunday, during a press conference, Barack Obama was asked: “Couple of weeks ago you told Matt Lauer that Donald Trump would not win the presidency, do you now think that he will not be able to win the nomination now?”
Obama replied, “I found it interesting that everybody is focusing on Trump primarily, just because he speaks in more interesting ways, what the other candidates are saying as well.”
Moreover, he said, “They deny climate change, and I think that’s troubling for the international community since the science is unequable and the other countries around the world count the United States being on the side of science, reason and common sense. It’s also because they know that if the United States is not going to act on significant problems in smart ways, then nobody will.
It is not just about Mr. Trump; you must look at the statement made by the other candidates. There’s not a single candidate in the Republican primary, who think that we should do anything about climate change, and that’s serious because the rest of the world will look at you and say, how can that be possible?
Barack Obama: The Presidency is not about Promotion and Marketing, it is of hard decision making
I’ll leave you to speculate that how this race is going to be, but I will continue to believe that Mr. Trump will not be president and the reason is that I have a lot of believing in American people. They recognize that being president is a dangerous job, it’s not about hosting a talk show or reality, neither about promotion or marketing, it’s hard, and a lot of people count on us getting it right.
It’s not a matter of pandering and doing whatever will get you the news on the given day. Sometimes it requires making hard decisions even when people don’t like it and doing things which are unpopular and standing up for individuals who are vulnerable but don’t have some powerful political constituency.
It requires to being able to work with leaders around the world in a way that reflects the principal of the office and gives people confidence that you know that fact, you are aware of their names and you know that where they are on the map and know something about their history.
So, primarily people see it as entertainment, often it is reported just like entertainment. These are the folks who I have faith in because they are ultimately going to stand where I am standing right now, has the nuclear power with them, can order 21-year old into a firefight. They have to make sure that the banking system doesn’t collapse and will often be responsible for not just United States of America but 20 others countries that are having significant problems and are looking us to do something.
American people are pretty sensible and I think they will make sensible choice.
Trump response to Barack Obama’s comment, call his work ‘Lousy’
