President-elect Donald Trump takes to Twitter to refute President Barack Obama

WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump is continuing the debate over whether he would have won an election against President Barack Obama.

Trump writes on Twitter that wrote “President Obama campaigned hard (and personally) in very important swing states, and lost. The voters wanted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

A dispute erupted Monday between Obama and Trump, spurred by Obama’s hypothetical musings that had he run again, he would have been victorious. Obama suggested he still holds enough sway over the coalition of voters that elected him twice to get them to vote for him once again.

Trump’s response: “NO WAY!”


It wasn’t immediately clear whether Trump was referring to Obama’s own presidential runs, or the campaigning the president did in 2016 on Hillary Clinton’s behalf. Obama swept most key swing states in his two bids for the White House, but Clinton fell short.
