It’s perhaps the question that will never have a definitive answer, but in some parallel universe whereby Barack Obama could run for a third term as United States president how would he have fared against current president-elect Donald Trump? Obama says he is confident he would have won.

The president sat down with former White House adviser David Axelrod and revealed that he has enough support from those voters who have twice elected him to the position to secure their votes for a third time.

“I am confident in this vision because I’m confident that if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could’ve mobilised a majority of the American people to rally behind it,” Obama says in the interview.

As you might expect, the president-elect Donald Trump had an opposing opinion and quickly took to social media to share it.

“President Obama said that he thinks he would have won against me. He should say that but I say NO WAY!” he wrote on his Twitter account.

Trump says Obama’s poor record of achievement would have stopped him from taking the office a third time and used jobs leaving the US, the ongoing threat of Islamic State and Obama Care as his examples.

While Obama was outspoken against the president-elect in the lead up to the election in November, he has not had much to say on things since the businessman secured victory. Perhaps this is to ensure a smooth transition into the White House in early-2107.

    Perhaps, perhaps not, but either way – it is unnecessary and inappropriate to verbalize such sentiment. An uncharacteristic misstep for him.

  2. Americans has voted Donald Trump as next President of America, its base on economy . The Americans believe that they can be like Donald Trump. Donald Trump has make himself a billionaire, and now he can make the American at least millionaire. How stupid can they be! Obama did not really achieve in economy, it because he is a coloured and taking over from Bush Senior and Bush junior its a disaster

    He is having an identity crisis and blotting his legacy on a daily basis. One of the prisoners that he has recklessly pardoned has already murdered a mother and daughter.

    Trump won because people did not trust Clinton after her emails were leaked by Trump supporters. Whether those supporters were American or Russian is still unclear.
    He could not have won on the basis of handling the economy because some of the methods used in amassing the money he now has were not legal. Had he not employed questionable monetary tactics he would now be bankrupt.
    Wonder what has happened to the sexual harassment charges Trump was supposed to be facing before Christmas. Have they somehow been made disappear by the establishment?
    There can be little doubt that if Trump keeps his election promises we are headed for disaster.
