Donald Trump Believes Barack Obama Likes Him

President Donald Trump, who for years led the birther movement questioning the very legitimacy of Barack Obama’s presidency, says he believes his predecessor likes him. 

“It’s a very strange phenomenon: We get along,” Trump told Bill O’Reilly in an interview for Fox News broadcast Monday. “I don’t know if he’ll admit this, but he likes me. I like him.”

“How do you know he likes you?” O’Reilly asked.

“Because I can feel it,” Trump replied. “That’s what I do in life. It’s called, like, ‘I understand.’”

He also claimed Obama campaigned harder for Hillary Clinton than she did for herself.

“He was vicious during the campaign toward me, and I was vicious toward him. We said horrible things about each other, and then we hop into the car and we drive down Pennsylvania Avenue together, we don’t even talk about it,” he said. “Politics is amazing.”
