Obama says Trump lacks temperament, judgment to be president

BY foxsports • October 11, 2016

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) President Barack Obama is harshly criticizing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump during a rally in North Carolina, saying he has proven over and over again that he is unfit to lead the country.

Obama says in his races with Republicans John McCain and Mitt Romney, they disagreed on policy, but he never thought they weren't honorable.

Obama is pitching the current presidential contest as different. He says Trump ''doesn't have the temperament, or the judgment, or the knowledge, or apparently, the desire to obtain the knowledge, or the basic honesty that a president needs to have.

Plus, Obama says, ''And that was true even before we heard about his attitude toward women.''

Obama says the closer the nation gets to Election Day, the clearer the choice becomes.

The White House says 1 million low-income high school students will receive free internet access under President Barack Obama's ''My Brother's Keeper'' initiative for minority males.

The Sprint Corp. will provide students who can't get on the internet at home with free tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices, and four years of service.

Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure says the goal is to complete distribution within five years.

Obama launched ''My Brother's Keeper'' in 2014. The program is among the topics the president will discuss Tuesday in Greensboro, North Carolina, during a forum hosted by ''The Undefeated.''
