Obama: ‘We Can Always Send the Navy SEALS’ to Remove Trump from White House
Former president made the remarks during Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Former President Barack Obama suggested one way of removing President Donald Trump from the White House would be sending "the Navy SEALs.”
Obama told ABC’s left-wing late-night host Jimmy Kimmel that “we can always send the Navy SEALs” to physically remove Trump.
The former president made the remarks during Jimmy Kimmel Live! while promoting his new memoir, A Promised Land.
Kimmel asked Obama if there were any secret spots where “someone could hide” if they don’t want to leave.
“Well, I think we can always send the Navy SEALS in there to dig him out."
Kimmel then asked if it would be weird to call Joe Biden, “Mr. President.”
“No,” Obama replied, “I’ve already called him Mr. President Elect.”
Kimmel earlier suggested that it was perhaps too early to assume that Biden won the election.
His remarks come as Trump contests tallies in key swing states while promising to fight in court amid allegations the election was rigged.
“Do you feel that when you congratulated Biden and Senator Harris that you were premature in doing that?” Kimmel asked.
“No, I thought I was right on time,” Obama replied.
Obama also praised former President George W. Bush and described him as a “patriot.”
“When I came in, we were in the middle of a big crisis, the financial crisis. George W. Bush, he and I had obviously big policy differences, but he’s a good man, he’s a patriot,” Obama said.
“And he ordered everybody on his team to work seamlessly with us on the transition."
"Could not have been more gracious."
"Could not have been more helpful."
"And that actually helped us be able to get a head start on trying to stem what could have been a great depression instead of a great recession.”
Earlier this year, Biden said he expected the military to remove Trump if he refused to leave the White House.
The former Vice President told The Daily Show host Trevor Noah that Trump "going to try and steal this election."
