Thursday during a news conference in Laos, President Barack Obama said voters will reject Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s “wacky” ideas.
Obama said, “As far as Mr. Trump, I think I have already offered my opinion. I don’t think the guy is qualified to be president of the United States. Every time he speaks, that opinion is confirmed. The most important thing for the public and the press is to just listen to what he says and follow up and ask questions about what appear to be either contradictory, or uninformed, or outright wacky ideas.”
He added, “Behavior that in normal times we would consider completely unacceptable and outrageous becomes normalized. People start thinking that we should be grading on a curve. But I can tell you from the interactions I have had over the last eight or nine days with foreign leaders that this is serious business. You actually have to know what you are talking about and you actually have to have done your homework. When you speak, it should actually reflect thought-out policy you can implement.”
