President Barack Obama believes he would win re-election if he were able to run for a third term, according to a CNN interview published Monday.
Obama told CNN he would win because he achieved the “change” he ran on in 2008, asserting he successfully shifted America’s culture.
“In the wake of the election and Trump winning, a lot of people have suggested that somehow, it really was a fantasy,” Obama said of his change slogan in 2008. “What I would argue is, is that the culture actually did shift, that the majority does buy into the notion of a one America that is tolerant and diverse and open and full of energy and dynamism.”
“I am confident in this vision because I’m confident that if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could’ve mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it,” Obama told David Axelrod during the interview.
