President Barack Obama said he would have won against the president-elect Donald Trump had he run this year but Donald Trump wasted no time in replying that there was no way Barack Obama would have emerged victorious over him. This revelation was made known in Obama’s interview which was aired on CNN. He said his message of hope and change still resonates with voters and that could have propelled him to victory over Trump.
The president said, if he had articulated his message, majority of American voters would have rallied behind him. He said even people who disagree with him would say the vision, the direction that you point toward is the right one.
The president-elect swiftly responded on twitter, saying there was no way he would have been defeated describing the world was gloomy before he won and there was no hope. He said the market has risen by 10% and Christmas holiday spending is over a trillion dollars.
Trump’s assertion on Christmas spending may not be real. He seems to have gotten his claim from annual Deloitte Holiday Survey, which predicted Holiday sales to exceed $1 trillion this year, but the survey concluded that overall, gift spending intentions remain similar to 2015.
President Obama said he wasn’t faulting Hillary Clinton for losing the election and there was a double standard that the press and the public had formed over her during her decades in the spotlight.
Clinton spokesman Fallon agreed the president would have defeated Trump and Clinton could have won if FBI Director James Comey hadn’t reopened the investigation into her private email server days before the election. According to the Clinton camp, the FBI was the chief reason Hillary Clinton lost the election to Donald Trump. Despite his win, Trump is very weak.
After all, Trump secured majority win in the Electoral College.
