Trump Calls Obama ‘Incompetent’ For Losing Olympics Bid

President Obama proved he is “incompetent” by failing to persuade Olympics officials to hold their games in the United States, according to Donald Trump.

Breitbart News reported that the Republican presidential front-runner declared at a recent campaign event: “Remember when the president flew to Europe to make a pitch? Now, this is the president of the United States. He made a pitch for the Olympics to come to the United States, and I think that’s great. I like it. But if you’re the president, you don’t go over there, make a pitch and then not win, right? Too big of a position … if you’re the president, you got to know the answer before you go over.”

Trump explained that Obama should have determined before his trip to meet with Olympics officials whether they were willing to choose the United States. “So, we have the president of the United States go over to make a pitch for the Olympics and he gets rejected,” the billionaire real-estate developer said. “We didn’t come in first, or second or third. I think we came in fourth.”

The candidate’s rant continued: “When you’re the president of the United States and you want to get the Olympics to come to this country, and you go over there and you don’t know the answer beforehand, you’re incompetent. You’re incompetent; totally incompetent.”

Trump frequently cites his background in business as evidence that he would be an effective negotiator on trade agreements and other foreign-policy issues if he becomes the nation’s next commander in chief. He is critical of deals like NAFTA, which have cost U.S. workers millions of jobs.
