President Obama May Weigh In On Important Issues As Ex-President Instead Of Staying On The Sidelines And Feels He Could Have Beaten Trump If He Were Able To Run Again.
President Barack Obama isn’t arguing for a repeal of the Twenty-Second Amendment, but he believes he could have won a third term – beating Donald Trump – if he had been allowed to run for a third term in office.
And he said he might not stay on the sidelines and let his successor have the spotlight all to himself, if Trump’s presidency raises ‘foundational issues about our democracy.’
Obama told his former senior adviser David Axelrod, who is now a CNN contributor, that the vision of a united America he stressed in his famous 2004 Democratic National Convention keynote speech is still powerful enough that it might have carried the day.
‘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.’
