President of the United States Barack Obama called on the powerful representatives of the Republican Party to officially withdraw the support for Donald Trump as their candidate for the head of the state. BBC Russian service reported this on Wednesday.
‘There has to come a point at which you say somebody who makes those kinds of statements doesn’t have the judgment, the temperament, the understanding, to occupy the most powerful position in the world’, Obama said, clearly referring to Trump.
While speaking in favor of Hillary Clinton, the presidential candidate from the Democrats, Obama avoided calling Trump by name, saying 'this is not somebody I can support for president of the United States’. The current U.S. leader added that Trump doubts the very basic values such as tolerance, complying with law procedures and mutual respect.
‘Our democracy doesn’t work that way’, Obama said.
