President Obama thinks he would've won a third term, but Donald Trump doesn't agree. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://www.tytnetwork.com/go "President Barack Obama may be convinced he could have bested Donald Trump in a race to the White House, but the president-elect says “no way!” Trump took to Twitter Monday to shoot down Obama’s claim that he could have beaten the Republican candidate in a head-to-head race had the president not been prohibited by law from running for a third term. Obama told his former senior advisor, David Axelrod, on his podcast, “The Axe Files,” that he believes his vision of a “tolerant and diverse and open” America could have garnered enough votes for yet another victory. “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.

So that's that. Donald Trump is now formally the President-elect of the United States. The Electoral College met and voted on Monday. And with the hyped campaign to turn electors away from Trump having virtually no impact, while turning fewer electors away from Trump than those turned away from Hillary Clinton, Il Duce Donald's impending presidency is even more official. Despite the fact that the endlessly aggressive know-nothing candidate lost the national popular vote by nearly 3 million votes, a significant 2.1 percentage points, the widest margin of popular vote defeat for any of the five American presidents to win the White House on the archaic strength of the Electoral College alone, it is Trump who shocked almost all the experts by prevailing. He did it -- as I warned in a column the week before the election, and as Bernie Sanders campaigners warned the arrogantly unresponsive Clinton high command repeatedly -- by breaking through the so-called "Blue Wall" that Democrats had supposedly erected in several key states of America's traditional industrial Heartland.

There was a movement to get members of the electoral college to be "faithless electors" against Donald Trump. It failed. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go "Republican Donald Trump prevailed in U.S. Electoral College voting on Monday to officially win election as the next president, easily dashing long-shot hopes by a small movement of detractors to block him from gaining the White House. Trump garnered more than the 270 electoral votes required to win, even as at least half a dozen U.S. electors broke with tradition to vote against their own state’s directives, the largest number of “faithless electorsseen in more than a century. A core of Democratic activists around the country had hoped to convince Republicans to cross lines and vote for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, who won the nationwide popular vote on Nov.

Numerous celebrities, from Bob Odenkirk to Moby to America's favorite president Jed Bartlett (aka Martin Sheen), have lined up for a new video urging the Electoral College to dump Trump on Monday. The Dec. 19 vote is pretty much the last chance to derail a Trump presidency, and would require 37 Republican electors to vote for someone else, taking Trump below the 270-vote threshold he needs to get to the White House. SEE ALSO: People want to elect Hillary so bad, they created the biggest Change.org petition ever Nearly 5 million members of the public have urged them to do this, and now a host of celebs insist that Trump lacks the qualifications, stability and respect for the Constitution that the office demands.

The White House Press Secretary, Josh Earnest said that across Europe people are “frustrated” with the economy, and that the results of Sunday’s referendum on constitutional reform in Italy indicate they are “looking for answers,” during a press conference in Washington DC on Monday. In answer to a question about whether an overriding narrative of populism could be given to recent events in Europe, the press secretary said that “irrespective of the election outcomes” across the continentpeople are frustrated that the current state of the economy doesnt allow them to meet the aspirations that they have set for themselves and their family. And they are looking for answers." Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi announced that he would step down on Sunday evening following a 'No' vote on a referendum proposing changes to the constitution. The reforms would have removed the current system of so-called perfect bicameralism where the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate have the exact same powers within the legislative process.

President Obama is working quietly behind the scenes to protect some public lands from drilling and mining. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/join "With less than two months before he has to vacate the White House, handing over the keys to a successor who has vowed to open more federal lands and waters to drilling and mining, President Barack Obama is making a last-ditch effort to save swathes of public land. This week, the Department of the Interior banned gold mining on 30,000 acres of land near the northern entrance of Yellowstone National Park. “There are good places to mine for gold, but the doorstep of [Yellowstone] is not one of them,” said DOI Secretary Sally Jewell on Monday. Obama’s administration also cancelled more than two dozen oil and gas leases in Western Colorado earlier this month, introduced a ban on offshore oil drilling in the Arctic for at least five years and helped negotiate a settlement that canceled 32,000 acres of mining leases on Montana land considered sacred by the Blackfeet tribe.
