Obama: Trump is ‘unfit’ for presidency
By Jesse Byrnes and Jordan Fabian
President Obama on Tuesday declared Donald Trump “unfit” to serve as president, calling on Republican leaders to abandon their support for their own party’s presidential nominee.
It is rare for a president at such a formal setting to rip into a potential successor’s ability to serve. Yet Trump’s unprecedented campaign, and division within the GOP over it, have given Obama an opening.
Rep. Richard Hanna, a retiring congressman from New York, on Tuesday became the first GOP lawmaker to say he would vote for Clinton.
Obama said his opponents in 2008 and 2012 — McCain and Mitt Romney — were “wrong on certain policy issues, but I never thought that they couldn’t do the job.”
