Obama: I Never Thought ‘The Republic Was at Risk’ With McCain or Romney, But This Time…

obamaPresident Obama made it clear to voters in North Carolina today that he considers Donald Trump to genuinely pose a risk to the nation.

He said, “We’re not Democrats or Republicans first, we’re Americans first, and there’s certain standards of behavior we should expect out of our leaders.”

The president told the crowd there are plenty of Republicans who in no way act like Trump before saying this:

“I ran against John McCain, I ran against Mitt Romney, I thought I’d be a better president. But I never thought that the republic was at risk if they were elected.”

He proceeded to tell the crowd that they need to really get out and vote.
