The current president of the United States has come to terms with the fact that Donald Trump – arguable one of the worst choice Republicans have made to run for president – could win in November.
“Anything is possible,” Obama said in an interview that aired on NBC’s “Today” show Wednesday. “It is the nature of democracy that until those votes are cast and the American people have their say, we don’t know.”
“As somebody who has now been in elected office, at various levels, for about 20 years,” the president continued, “I’ve seen all kinds of crazy stuff happen.”
At a news conference in February, Obama rejected the idea that voters would elect Trump to succeed him in the Oval Office.
“I continue to believe Mr. Trump will not be president,” Obama said. “And the reason is because I have a lot of faith in the American people, and I think they recognize that being president is a serious job. It’s not hosting a talk show or a reality show, it’s not promotion, it’s not marketing, it’s hard. And a lot of people count on us getting it right, and it’s not a matter of pandering and doing whatever will get you in the news on a given day.”
