Trump Says Obama ‘Really Doing Great,’ Does Not ‘Care’ About Prosecuting Clinton Following Election
He mentioned Obama in discussing concerns about voter fraud, which he said has only gotten worse since the current president spoke of the matter in 2008.
President Obamawho by the way Ive gotten along with so well, he said at the Baton Rouge event, being met with boos in mentioning Obama.
No, no, no, Trump said in response to the crowds displeasure. Hes really doing great. Hes been so nice.
But eight years ago he talked about, in Chicago, what goes on. They dont talk about it any more, he stated. And believe me, its only gotten worse folks, only gotten worse.Weve got to talk about it.
Trump had previouslystated of Obama in August, I think hes the worst president maybe in the history of our country. I think hes been a disaster. Hes been weak. Hes been ineffective.
I think that Hillary Clinton has the potential to be even worse, he added. She will be terrible. Look at the lies.
But later in the day, when speaking to supporters in Michigan, as Trump was met with chants of lock her up from those who wanted him to take action against Clinton, he said those ideas were all in the past.
No, forget it. That plays great before the election, he said in response. Now we dont care, right?
Trump had stated while running for office that when elected, he would appoint a special prosecutor to look into Clintons use of a private server while secretary of state.
Its just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country,Clinton said during a presidential debate in October.
Because youd be in jail, Trump replied.
However, weeks after the election, when asked about the matter, he said he wasnt interested in prosecuting his former Democratic opponent.
I dont want to hurt the Clintons; I really dont, Trumptold the New York Times. She went through a lot and suffered greatly in many different ways, and I am not looking to hurt them at all. The campaign was vicious.
Its not something that I feel very strongly about, he said. This has been a very painful period of time.
