Obama: If Trump Disrespects the Constitution Now, What Happens When He Has ‘Actual Power’?

President Obama campaigned again for Hillary Clinton in Ohio today and warned that someone who disrespects the Constitution like Donald Trump does would be dangerous as president.

The president sent out this warning to people about the dangers of what Trump could do with actual presidential power:

“If you disrespect the Constitution by threatening to shut down the press when it doesn’t say things you like or threaten to throw your opponent in jail or discriminate against people of different faiths––if you do that before you are elected, then what are you gonna do when you have actual power to do those things?”
