Trump Slams Obama Following The President’s Claim He Would’ve Won The Election

President Barack Obama said in an interview published on CNN Monday that he could have beaten President Elect Donald Trump if the two squared off against each other. Trump quickly took to Twitter to disagree.

David Axelrod, former senior advisor to the president, interviewed the commander-in-chief. President Obama believes his 2004 Democratic National Convention keynote speech and his vision to unite America could have carried him to victory.

"You know, I am confident in this vision because I'm confident that if I – if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could've mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it," said President Obama. "I know that in conversations that I've had with people around the country, even some people who disagreed with me, they would say, "The vision, the direction that you point towards is the right one."

President Elect Trump jumped on his Twitter account to respond. "President Obama said that he thinks he would have won against me. He should say that but I say NO WAY! -jobs leaving, ISIS, Ocare, etc."

He followed up with a tweet slamming the UN: "The United Nations has such great potential but right now it is just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time. So sad!"

The Constitution prohibits presidents from serving a third term. The President has had two terms since his famous speech, but in his two terms in office the country has become more divided than ever.

The president blames Fox News for mobilizing a 'backlash to this vision' to beet the Democrats.
