President Obama Still Thinks Donald Trump is 'Unqualified' to Be President
President Barack Obama may have peacefully welcomed Donald Trump into the White House and promised to help him succeed as the next president, but that doesn’t mean he thinks the president-elect is qualified for the job.
Just this week, Obama told the crowd at a rally that “Donald Trump is temperamentally unfit to be commander-in-chief” and “uniquely unqualified” to be the President of the United States.
The White House press secretary Josh Earnest was asked if Obama still holds those views.
“Look, the president’s views haven’t changed. He stands by what he said on the campaign trail,” Earnest said on Thursday (November 10). “He had an opportunity to make his argument. He made that argument vigorously. He made that argument in states all across the country.”
“But, the American people decided. The election is over. The president didn’t get to choose his successor, the American people did,” he added.
