President-elect Donald Trump responded to Obama's claim that if he'd run for president a third term, he would have won.
Trump took to Twitter to offer up a reaction.
"President Obama said that he thinks he would have won against me. He should say that but I say NO WAY!" Trump wrote.
Trump also suggested that Obama's record with the Affordable Care Act and ISIS' continued threat would have prevented his victory.
President Obama said he if could have run for a third term, he would have won.
In a CNN interview with former advisor David Axelrod for "The Axe Files" podcast, Obama insisted the vision he ran on in 2008 had not faded and that the majority of Americans still believed in it.
But in 2016, he argued, failed Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton -- and Obama's former Secretary of State -- ignored too many voting blocs to win.
