During President Barack Obama interview with former senior adviser David Axelrod Obama said that he thought he would have won if he had run this year, President-elect Donald Trump fired back on Twitter with a clear conviction of his own.
Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon tweeted a response to Obama’s claim, agreeing that the president could have won. He added that she could have, too, if FBI Director James Comey hadn’t renewed the investigation into her private email server days before the election, a move that Clinton aides have repeatedly blamed for costing her the win.
“I agree Obama would have beaten Trump,” Fallon wrote. “I also think Clinton could have, but for Comey. Despite his win, Trump is very weak.”
Though Trump secured a large win in the Electoral College, Clinton won almost 3 million more votes nationwide.
