(Newser) – President Obama believes he could've won the 2016 election if he'd been able to run on "the notion of a one America that is tolerant and diverse and open and full of energy and dynamism." Donald Trump's reaction: "NO WAY!" In a tweet Monday, Trump cited ISIS, the Affordable Care Act, and jobs leaving the country as just a few reasons why Obama couldn't have defeated him, reports Politico. Newt Gingrich, who's served as an adviser to Trump, apparently agrees. Though Obama "would have increased the turnout in the African American community," his lies "would have come back to haunt him," he says, per the Washington Post. "It would have been a totally different race." (Read more Donald Trump stories.)
