US elections 2016: Barack Obama thinks Donald Trump is unfit to become US President
Voicing concerns over the ascend of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, US president Barack Obama today warned that Trump is “unfit” to serve as the President US.
Barack Obama also criticized the Republicans for electing the businessman as their nominee. Obama’s criticism has come in the wake of Trump’s comments on the father of a slain Muslim soldier and ambiguities on Russian attacks in Ukraine, said CNN.
Earlier Obama has said that Trump lacks an awareness of global politics and that he endangers the world and US, once he becomes the President.
“The Republican nominee is unfit to serve as President,” Obama told while speaking to media persons at a White House news conference along with the Prime Minister of Singapore. Obama mockingly said, “He keeps on proving it.”
Meanwhile, the campaigners of Donald Trump responded by criticizing both Obama and Hillary Clinton. “Hillary Clinton has proven herself unfit to serve in any government office,” alleged a recent statement from the Trump’s campaigners to media today.
It added, “Obama-Clinton have destabilized the Middle East, handed Iraq, Libya and Syria to ISIS, and allowed our personnel to be slaughtered at Benghazi.”
Obama today opened up his mind about what he feels about the ascend of Trump in US’ politics. He added, though he had disagreements with other Republican nominees like John McCain and Mitt Romney, he never suspected their ability to rule the country.
Talking about the recent attack on the father of a dead Muslim American soldier, Obama said, “The notion that he would attack a Gold Star family that made such extraordinary sacrifices on behalf of our country, the fact that he doesn’t appear to have basic knowledge of critical issues in Europe, the Middle East, in Asia, means that he’s woefully unprepared to do this job.”
Obama added that now even Trump’s own party men are wary of him. “This isn’t a situation where you have an episodic gaffe. This is daily and weekly where they are distancing themselves from statements he’s making. There has to be a point at which you say, this is not somebody I can support for President of the United States, even if he purports to be a member of my party’.”
He urged them to make their voices clear and not to support Trump. “There has to be a point at which you say, ‘Enough’,” Obama appealed to the Republicans.
