“Trump is not succeeding me” – President Barack Obama



Barack Obama - August 2014 - BN Music - 91The 44th and current president of the United States of America, Barack Obama made the statement at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser in Santa Monica, California on Thursday evening.

He said, “I recognize that there is a deep obsession right now about Mr. Trump. And one of you pulled me aside and squeezed me hard and said, ‘Tell me that Mr. Trump is not succeeding you.’ And I said, ‘Mr. Trump is not succeeding me.'”

He thanked Donald Trump and his main Republican rival Ted Cruz for their honesty, crediting them for exposing “some of the nonsense that we’ve been dealing with in Congress on a daily basis.”

      Well, maybe Obama knows something only the POTUS as access to. He has been saying this confidently for some time now-we shall see…

      Its called logic, statistics and mathematics as well.

      Nobody can win the Presidency of America without the minority vote which Trump has lost massively with his ill-advised statements. That’s why even his party the republican party are scrambling to stop him.

    Oga wasn’t this same way people were saying Romney will bounce you until that 47% video and Clinton’s speech? Anything is possible. Iran for example may do something stupid tomorrow, a terrorist may blow something up with investigations showing they were strolled through the border, e.t.c.

      Yes, because Obama has now turned to Doyin Okupe that can be saying anything anyhow. Do you know how calculated every word from every American politician’s mouth is? They hire specialists trained in the best schools in the world, from the brand of their shirt to the hue of their tie, w everything counts. For him to be so comfortable that he’s wearing a RED tie…. Oh wait, you probably don’t understand what that means

      RED: Republican colours.

      That however isn’t a red tie(possibly maroon; definitely not red) and American election cycles are rarely predictable.

      Isn’t the shade closer to this :

      than red??

      So how do you explain the crap that spews from the mouths of Trump and Cruz?

    Halleluyah somebody!! ? For those who have never been there, This is the best time to visit the States, cus if Trump unfortunately wins? The chances of you getting a visa into the U.S is slim.

    Mr President sir,I was never worried about that.
    Never thought for one day that Trump will be President.
    Definitely he will never succeed you ……

    because there’s enough dirt on trumps butt 2 impeach him before he becomes president.

    If you think Obama campaign in 2008 and 2012 is off the chain wait till this summer ones a democratic candidate have being nominated Obama will destroy Donald Trump. John McCain and Mitt Romney is even hard for him but he beat them both but for Donald J Trump, Obama will will destroy the guy. I am already feeling sad for Donald Trump already.

    Trump should be left alone. Let Americans decide who their next President should be.
    I love Obama, though.

      to be honest, Trump should not be left alone. He’s a monumental idiot and the post is too important.

      Trump is no idiot. He is only incredibly rude, vain and crass. If there was another candidate who embodied Trump’s ideology in a more polished way, then it would be a no-contest because that person would whup Clinton/Sanders so fecking bad.
      For instance, Trump’s plan to ban Muslims from entering the US is just dumb. But a overwhelming majority of American agree that there is a problem with radical Islam. Obama and Clinton won’t even utter the words “Radical Islamic Terrorist”, yet the biggest fear on an American’s mind is a repeat of 9/11. Look at Abdelslam of Brussels who was sheltered by an entire community for months!!! That kind of incidence helps Trump’s message
      Look at immigration. Building a wall across the US border is financially reckless and would probably not solve the problem but it is symbolic of how Trump wants to tackle the problem. The Democrats want to give them amnesty and healthcare and integrate them, but that only keeps them coming across the border.

      If trump would be a little more courteous and stop burning bridges everywhere, he would definitely replace Obama in the White House. Mrs. Clinton wouldn’t last a single debate with him. She’ll leave in tears

      great points kiddo.
      so he’s not altogether an idiot. but very idiotic and dangerous. and monumental and puffed up.

      Hill wouldn’t leave in tears. I wouldn’t leave in tears. Standard bully tactics he uses anyone can read up on. He’s a Disgrace (that’s the kind of statement he makes then keeps repeating it and repeating it shit he is so annoying.)
      I responded before I saw your comment about tears, that was a very irritating comment to make about someone as tough as Hillary Clinton. And change your silly name 😛

    At this point trump is only part of the problem.. America has bigger problems.. Nd it took trumps campaign for the whole world to finally confirm that the ” land of the free” is a country full of hateful, racist, xenophobic people, and even religious bigots. they try to make us believe that it’s only a select group of people that are racist.. and that the majority of Americans are opened minded and have an inclusive culture.. but that can’t be true.. because if there are only a select few people that are so hateful, and racist, then I ask you. WHO IS VOTING FOR TRUMP? WHY DOES HE HAVE SO MANY SUPPORTERS? WHY IS HE SO HIGH UP IN THE POLLS.. how did Dr Ben Carson start supporting him all of a sudden..

    when trump an ounce tht he was running most of us thought it was a joke.. many people, including myself, thought ” ahh he won’t make far”.. because he is such a racist hateful person… bt it’s a shame that he has made it this far, and it’s not just because he is rich.. its because there are millions of Americans who subscribe to his useless ideologies.

    even if trump doesn’t win.. We now know the truth.. .and it is a damn shame that he has even made it this far.

    so Mr. president, I don’t think you should be bothered whether he will succeed you or not, but u should really be worried about the millions of people whose true character have been exposed.

      The bit that beats me, is how on earth Mr. Carson turned and gave Trump his support. The day I read that, I knew what Nigerians meant when they say ‘you fall my hand’. Like howwwww?

    Thank you president Obama. I feel Trump want to become the president just to tick his bucket list.

    Trump…that’s how they thought Hit**ler was a joke until he unleashed his master plan….and nuff people bought into it..seemingly Germans and a few other European countries were previously seen as above that sort of prejudice.

    It’s so funny how Nigerians can know who’s right to be Americas next president but can’t even understand what’s up in their land.

      As in eh! Paragraph upon paragraph too?? It’s not like you’re not allowed to have an opinion but it’s a totally different thing to think it’s worth a dime ?

    @tincan… It shows that Carson can be bought.. tht means he wasn’t honest and true.. lack of integrity.. that’s one down naa.. imagine if America had voted Carson into power.. He is a sellout..

    FCUK YOU OBAMA. It is not your call. It’s the people’s call. If Americans elect him as their president who the 4k are you to say otherwise. You are the reason for Trump’s rise. Americans are sick & tired of your BS. Americans made the biggest mistake of elected a community organizer to the prestigious position of he US President.. FCUK YOU VERY MUCH OBAMA. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The Carlo rossi ad which automatically plays once you open any bell naija thread using your phone is extremely utterly annoying. Even if your phone is muted at work it will still come on loud. Bella please disable the sound. It’s very annoying

    Seems like most of you cannot read.

    Some one asked him a simple open ended question and the man answered how he sees fit so what the fuck is your problem . It is not like he did a press conference to say this (as stolen pic caption by BellaNaija makes it seem) .

    Some of you all are some slow mutherfckers i swear.

    Reading is very essential but clearly i see many iilliterates from LindaIkeji blog have been migrating here lately ,

    I can tell by the razz shorthand spelling and writing and evidence the whole article was not read.

    RED is for confidence, extreme strength, and feistiness
    Blue is what you wear when you want to be trusted. You’re in a position where you care about opinion probably cause you need it in your favour ie when applying for a job or trying to keep one

    Please you people should not be lying on this site. Thank you
