Obama: I Have Faith In The American People That They Will Not Elect Trump

|

President Barack Obama says that Republican front-runner Donald Trump will not be elected to the White House in November. President Obama said, at a news conference in California after a meeting with southeast Asian leaders, that the presidency is "not a reality show," and "not marketing."

"The American people are pretty sensible, and I think they'll make a sensible choice in the end."

"I continue to believe Mr. Trump will not be president," Obama said. "And the reason is that I have a lot of faith in the American people. Being president is a serious job. It's not hosting a talk show, or a reality show."

He added: "The American people are pretty sensible, and I think they'll make a sensible choice in the end."

"It's not promotion, it's not marketing. It's hard. And a lot of people count on us getting it right."

"Whoever's standing where I'm standing right now has the nuclear codes with them, and can order 21-year-olds into a firefight, and has to make sure that the banking system doesn't collapse, and is often responsible for not just the United States of America, but 20 other countries that are having big problems, or are falling apart and are gonna be looking for us to something."
