So says President Obama about his prospects for a third term. During a July 28 speech in Ethiopia he said:
“I actually think I’m a pretty good president,” he said with a smile. “I think if I ran I could win. But I can’t. … The law is the law, and no one person is above the law, not even the president.”
CNN.com, QZ. com, RT.com are among online news sources around the world that quoted and commented on the president’s remarks. Another, NPR.com suggested that given the president’s recently rising approval ratings and the Obama team’s successful campaigning tactics, he very well could win an third term if only the 22nd Amendment that sets a limit of two terms did not stand in the way.
Donald Trump, one of the GOP candidates President Obama has criticized while in Africa, spoke earlier this week with Greta van Susteren on a variety of topics. At about 11 minutes into the 15-minute interview Trump gave his opinion on Obama’s hypothetical third term.
