Trump re­buts again Obama claim he could’ve won a third term

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Dave Boyer

Pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump took aim at Pres­i­dent Obama’s po­lit­i­cal prow­ess again Tues­day, point­ing out that Mr. Obama couldn’t sway vot­ers in key bat­tle­ground states dur­ing the pres­i­den­tial cam­paign.

“Pres­i­dent Obama cam­paigned hard (and per­son­ally) in the very im­por­tant swing states, and lost. The vot­ers wanted to make Amer­ica great again!” Mr. Trump said on Twit­ter, us­ing cap­i­tal let­ters to re­it­er­ate his cam­paign theme.

The pres­i­dent said in an in­ter­view broad­cast Mon­day that he be­lieves he would have won a third term against Mr. Trump if he had run again. The Con­sti­tu­tion for­bids pres­i­dents from serv­ing more than two terms.

But Mr. Trump pointed out that Mr. Obama cam­paigned for Hil­lary Clin­ton in swing states such as Michi­gan and Penn­syl­va­nia, which Mr. Trump won.
