Were Barack Obama’s comments possibly intended to help Donald Trump?

Barack Obama and Donald Trump


Barack Obama spoke against the possibility of a Donald Trump presidency, and Donald Trump responded.

February 17, 2016

After President Obama made a prediction Tuesday that “Mr. Trump will not be president,” the billionaire businessman bit back with his own challenge to Mr. Obama’s qualifications for the executive office.

“He has done such a lousy job as president,” Trump said on stage at a Beaufort, South Carolina rally Tuesday. “You look at our budgets. You look at our spending. We can’t beat ISIS. Obamacare is terrible. We’re going to terminate it. We’re going to absolutely terminate and replace it. I mean you look at everything. Our borders are like Swiss cheese.”

Aiming squarely at the president’s 2012 election record, Trump had this message for Mr. Obama: “You’re lucky I didn’t run last time when Romney ran because you would have been a one-term president.” …

“I continue to believe Mr. Trump will not be president,” Mr. Obama said at a press conference during a summit with Southeast Asian leaders in California. “And the reason is that I have a lot of faith in the American people. Being president is a serious job. It’s not hosting a talk show, or a reality show.”

He added that “the American people are pretty sensible, and I think they’ll make a sensible choice in the end.” http://www.cbsnews.com/news/donald-trump-obama-is-lucky-i-didnt-run-against-him-in-2012/

This has been the most openly bizarre presidential nomination season I have ever witnessed for the USA.

For decades, many have claimed that established powers have manipulated elections to get one of two people elected. How successful that may or may not have been in the past is certainly debatable.

But what is not debatable this time, is that powers in both the Democratic and Republican parties have attempted to manipulate the primary elections.

On the Democratic side, somehow Hillary Clinton won the Iowa caucuses based on a few coin tosses. Odd. Then, it was revealed that funding rules were changed to allow Hillary Clinton to get more money than before. Money that would not tend to be as likely to go to her opponent Bernie Sanders.

On the Republican side, we saw the audience for the last debate in South Carolina, clearly stacked against Donald Trump. They were obviously somehow encouraged to ‘boo’ frequently, in order to give the impression that Donald Trump was not the most popular Republican candidate for the office of the US president. Donald Trump and Rush Limbaugh (according to something I read) bashed the Republican establishment for this.

By commenting about attempted manipulations by Democrats and Republicans does NOT mean that I am a fan of either Bernie Sanders or Donald Trump–as I am not. For a few of my comments about them, check out my post after last week’s New Hampshire primary titled Sanders and Trump win, ‘Establishment takes a beating.’

That being said, many people in the USA are frustrated with the status quo and being manipulated.

But that is normal for democracy in the USA.

Notice a comment from a secular source that generally supports democracy:

All political campaigns lie and mislead. We all know that, and that knowledge is “baked into the cake,” so to speak, when it comes to assessing candidates. (Bookman J. GM on Romney: ‘Campaign politics at its cynical worst.’ Atlanta Journal Constitution, October 31, 2012. http://blogs.ajc.com/jay-bookman-blog/2012/10/31/gm-on-romney-campaign-politics-at-its-cynical-worst/)

No candidate should lie or mislead. But most seem to think that they cannot be fully honest about what they intend to do in order to not offend some and to get more votes.

Now, getting to some of Barack Obama’s comments, which were all over the news yesterday, think about this.  Barack Obama must surely realize that Donald Trump’s supporters are opposed to his presidency.

So, by Barack Obama speaking out against the possibility of a Donald Trump presidency, would that not tend to galvanize Donald Trump’s supporters to persuade others to vote for Donald Trump?

Is it not possible that Barack Obama made his comments, realizing that this would get more Republicans to support Donald Trump?

Stranger things have happened.

If this is what Barack Obama is doing, then he likely believes that Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders would have a better chance beating Donald Trump in the general election this coming November.  Thus, we might have witnessed still another attempt to manipulate this election.

As far as Donald Trump’s support goes, Voice of America reported the following about a new poll that came out today:

Trump Widens Lead in Quinnipiac Poll

February 17, 2016

A new poll released Wednesday says businessman Donald Trump has expanded his lead nationally over other competitors for the Republican nomination for president.

The Quinnipiac University poll showed Trump with 39 percent support, followed by 19 percent for Florida Senator Marco Rubio and 18 percent for Texas Senator Ted Cruz.

The last Quinnipiac poll came out February 5 and had Trump leading with 31 percent. Since then, he easily won last week’s New Hampshire primary and two Republicans dropped out of the race.

On the Democratic side, the poll remained unchanged with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a virtual tie with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who also scored a sizeable victory in New Hampshire.

The poll was conducted February 10-15 and involved a survey of 1,342 registered voters across the country. http://www.voanews.com/content/trump-widens-lead-in-quinnipiac-poll/3194447.html

The above poll does not reflect Barack Obama’s latest comments, but would have been affected by the debate that was in South Carolina the evening of the 13th. The ‘setup’ in South Carolina does not seem to have hurt Donald Trump.

Donald Trump may very well win the Republican nomination, presuming he is not killed or the Republican establishment cannot figure out a way to stop him. We will also see if the Democratic establishment can stop or slow down Bernie Sanders.

The USA needs national repentance and the Kingdom of God. This year’s voting will not solve the problems facing the USA.
