Trump is the GOP “circus,” according to Obama

President Barack Obama says years of knee-jerk GOP hostility toward him has fueled Donald Trump’s rise.

Relishing the opportunity to ridicule what he called the GOP “circus,” Obama sought to tie Trump to his primary election opponents by claiming they see eye-to-eye on the issues — even if the flamboyant billionaire puts on a more provocative act. The president said that on immigration and other issues, Trump’s not so different from Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

“What I’m not going to do is to validate some notion that the Republican crackup that’s been taking place is a consequence of actions that I’ve taken,” Obama said in the Rose Garden, citing conspiracy theories about his birth certificate as Exhibit A. “I don’t remember saying, ‘Hey, why don’t you ask me about that?'”

Trump’s biggest threat remained Cruz, who has secured 359 delegates to Trump’s 458 in the Republican contests held so far. Trump renewed his vigorous criticism of Cruz on Thursday, March 10, 2016 casting the rival he calls “Lying Ted” as too polarizing to break the Washington gridlock or win a general election.

President Obama’s approval rating hit 52 percent on Friday, March 11, 2016, according to Gallup’s three-day average, the highest Obama has scored in Gallup’s approval poll since May 2013.
