"Leadership is not fanning the flames of intolerance, and then acting all surprised when a fire breaks out,"(Barack Obama)
we certainly agree with you , Mr President.
President Barack Obama is fairly certain of one
thing when it comes to next year's election: Donald Trump won't succeed him in
the White House.
"He knows how to get attention. He is, you know, the classic reality TV character, and at this early stage, it's not surprising that he's gotten a lot of attention," Obama said of Trump in an interview on CBS television's "60 Minutes" news program.
"I don't think he'll end up being president of the United States," Obama said in the interview, which aired on Sunday.
Trump's incendiary comments on immigration and other issues have dominated the campaign and offended many Americans, but he nevertheless has seen his poll numbers climb steadily higher.
During a speech to Latino political leaders last week, Obama condemned the logic of "saying clearly inflammatory things and then saying, 'Well that's not what I meant' -- until you do it again and again."
"Leadership is not fanning the flames of intolerance, and then acting all surprised when a fire breaks out," he added.
Obama did not name Trump directly during that speech, instead denouncing the overall tone of the Republican presidential field.
Also Obama said in his "60 minutes " interview that he believes he would win if he had a
chance to run for a third term.
said he had a "bittersweet" feeling about the 15 months he has left
in the White House.
the one hand, I am very proud of what we've accomplished and it makes me think,
I'd love to do some more," Obama said.
by the time I'm finished, I think it will be time for me to go."
Would you vote for Obama for a third term?
