Trump laid it out on the O’Rielly Factor, letting Obama have it
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said Tuesday that President Barack Obama was “the worst president, maybe in the history of our country” after Obama called Trump “unfit to serve” and “woefully unprepared to do this job” earlier in the day.
“I think he’s been a disaster. He’s been weak, he’s been ineffective,” Trump said on Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor.” “I believe I know far more about foreign policy than he knows. Look at Ukraine. He talks about Ukraine [and] how tough he is with Russia, in the meantime they took over Crimea.”
Earlier Tuesday, Trump said that Obama and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton have “single-handedly destabilized the Middle East” while putting the “country at risk” with Clinton’s use of a private email server.
“She is reckless with her emails, reckless with regime change, and reckless with American lives,” Trump said.
The real estate mogul also restated his concern that the November election would be “rigged”. He told host Bill O’Reilly that recent court rulings striking down voter ID laws in Wisconsin and North Carolina meant that people would “vote 10 times, maybe. Who knows?”
“I am very concerned and I hope the Republicans are going to be very watchful,” Trump said.
Obama delivered his broadside against Trump while fielding a question at the top of a White House press conference with the visiting prime minister of Singapore. Obama diverted from the central topic of that visit – moving along the controversial Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal, which Trump opposes – to fundamentally question whether the federal government could function properly if Trump wins.
I don’t know what to laugh at, the fact that Obama thinks that Trump is unfit to serve (ironic statement of the year), or that he’s so obesessed with Trump that he did it during a totally unrelated press conference.
