In a preview clip of an interview set to air on Wednesday, President Barack Obama admitted that it was possible Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump could be the next president of the United States. When asked by “Today” show co-host Savannah Guthrie if it were possible Trump wins the presidency, Obama responded with “anything is possible.” “Anything is possible,” Obama said. “It is the nature of democracy that until those votes are cast and the American people — you know, have their say– we don’t know.” When asked if he were worried about an outcome with Trump emerging victorious, Obama said if you’re “running scared,” defeat was a possibility. “You know, as somebody who has now been in elected office at various levels for about 20 years, I’ve seen all kinds of crazy stuff happen,” he replied. “And, I think anybody who goes into campaigns not running scared can end up losing.” Follow Jeff Poor on Twitter @jeff_poor
