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.

    It would be nice if President Obama was a gracious as President Bush was to him, but, unfortunately, I don’t think that will be the case. Many people thought that Barack Obama was unqualified when he won in 2008. Funny how all those people who are crying over Hillary Clinton now didn’t seem to have a problem when the less qualified Obama beat her back then. Back then, it was Hillary and Bill who were called racists and running a racist campaign by the same people who are now saying the same things about Trump.

    Another example of the media “making” the news, not reporting it… Listen to what the spokesman actually said, in its fullness. You did not quote him with integrity. Stop trying to rig it. You media lost the election, finally.

    This quote is the problem “But, the American people decided. The election is over. The president didn’t get to choose his successor, the American people did,” The people did decide but the person named president elect is not the one they decided, all we can hope is that the electoral college grows a pair and does the will of the people and not vote in Trump.

    I do not blame President Obama one bit for having ill feelings toward Donald Trump. Look at what Trump did. His attacks were highly abnormal. And it seemed quite “personal.”

    I think the Trump ego said to himself about the president, “He’s too calm, he’s weak. If Obama can be president, I should be president!”
