Barack Obama has spoken out in favor of attacking President Donald Trump again, this time claiming that there is “no legal basis” for his allegations of widespread election fraud in the presidential election.
Obama beats Trump
Obama pondered the 2016 election during an interview with CBS host Gayle King, which airs on Sunday.
“When Donald Trump won, I stayed up until 2:30 in the morning and then called Donald Trump to congratulate him. His lead on Hillary Clinton was no bigger than Joe Biden’s lead on him, ”Obama said.
The former president went on to claim that Trump supporters who consistently followed the president’s tweets and conservative media would view these allegations of election fraud as fact.
“So you have millions of people out there who think, ‘Oh yeah, there must be fraud because the president said it was,” Obama added.

Obama went on to say that Trump’s refusal to allow the election was dangerous to American democracy. He said, “The peaceful transfer of power – the idea that any one of us who attains an elected office, be it a dog catcher or a president, is a servant of the people.”

Obama calls Trump supporters racist
This came after Obama attacked Trump supporters as “racist” in his new treatise “Promised Land”.
“It was as if my presence in the White House had triggered a deep-seated panic, a feeling that the natural order had been disrupted,” wrote Obama. “That is exactly what Donald Trump understood when he started making claims that I was not born in the United States and was therefore an illegitimate president.
“For millions of Americans who have been terrified by a black man in the White House, he promised an elixir for their racial fear,” he added.
Obama continues the narrative that anyone who did not support him as president was “racist” and ignored the fact that perhaps some voters just did not like his policies.

Given that the Democrats have been moaning for four years that Trump is not a legitimate president, they will be the last to complain about someone not accepting an election result. They had their time questioning the election results when they didn’t go their own way, and now it’s our turn. Plain and simple.
