United States President Barack Obama has found Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s 2005 tape as obnoxious and offensive that shows him making vulgar remarks about women , the White House has said.
He said that his leaked videotape about groping women would also disqualify him from even a job at a convenience store and the US doesn’t deserve him as the President.
“The President found the tape as repugnant as most Americans did. And I think there’s been a pretty clear statement by people all along the ideological spectrum that those statements constituted sexual assault,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters yesterday.
“I know you heard from the Vice President about that over the weekend and that is an observation that we have heard from a wide variety of sources. That is why many people, I believe, have concluded that”, he said.
Barack Obama shared his views Speaking at a campaign rally in Greensboro, North Carolina, for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. He said the choice was clear in the Nov. 8 election even before the tape was leaked last week showing Trump speaking offensive and vulgar things about women. “Now you find a situation in which the guy says stuff that nobody would find tolerable if they were applying for a job at 7-Eleven,” Obama told the crowd, referring to the convenience store chain.
He also during the rally urged people to support Hillary Clinton over Trump.
When confronted, Trump said during Sunday night’s presidential debate that he was embarrassed by the video, but dismissed it as “locker room talk.”
Obama also made some carping remark on some Republicans who have condemned his remarks but are still backing the New York businessman. “The fact that now you’ve got people saying: ‘We strongly disagree, we really disapprove … but we’re still endorsing him.’ They still think he should be the president, that doesn’t make sense to me,” Obama said.
