Donald Trump Says He's Shutting Down His Foundation
The president-elect has faced a wave of scrutiny over his potential conflicts of interest.LEARN MORE
In an interview with David Axelrod, the president said a majority of Americans would have rallied behind his vision.
President Barack Obama suggested that if he'd been allowed to run again, he would have won this year's presidential election.
"I am confident in this vision because I'm confident that if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could've mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it," Obama said on the "Axe Files" podcast.
In an interview with David Axelrod, Obama argued even those who'd criticized his vision for the country in the past would have voted in favor of it in November.
Looking at polls throughout the campaign season, Obama might have good reason to be confident.
The fact that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were two of the least-liked candidates in modern American history likely would have helped Obama's case, too.
But support for Obama on specific issues wasn't as strong.
Obviously, the 22nd Amendment kept Obama from trying for a third term. But in the interview, he said the message of hope and change that he pushed in his first presidential run still strikes a chord today.
