Obama: GOP Thinks I Would Have Turned U.S. into Cuba
Obama: GOP thinks I would have turned US into Cuba (The Hill)
President Obama on Wednesday joked that Republicans believe he would have turned the United States into communist Cuba if constitutional limits on power didn’t exist.
The president was asked about the likelihood of GOP front-runner Donald Trump being elected president during a town hall with young people in Argentina.
Obama didn’t answer directly, saying he believes voters will make a “good choice” in the 2016 elections.
But even if voters pick a bad president, Obama said, “there is limits to the damage they can do” because of separation of powers between the executive, legislative and judicial branches.
