President Obama got himself into the news by claiming that had he run, he would have beaten Donald Trump but Trump had other ideas on the subject. He tweet his response to the claim.
President Obama said that he thinks he would have won against me. He should say that but I say NO WAY! – jobs leaving, ISIS, OCare, etc.

The truth is that Hillary Clinton pretty much ran on Obama’s failed policies so we have to agree that Trump would have beaten Obama. It’s all rather moot as Obama couldn’t run so this statement was more about massaging his ego.
