President Barack Obama NBC News in an interview at the White House that Donald Trump just might win the November election and succeed him in the Oval Office.
'Anything is possible,' he told Savannah Guthrie. It is the nature of democracy that until those votes are cast and the American people, you know, have their say, we don't know.'
The interview will air Wednesday morning on the 'Today' show. NBC released a partial transcript of Obama's surprising remarks shortly after Hillary Clinton won the Democratic Party's presidential nomination.
Asked if he was worried about a Republican taking his place in the White House, Obama turned philosophical.
'You know, as somebody who has now been in elected office – at various levels – for about 20 years,' he said, 'I've seen all kinds of crazy stuff happen. And I think anybody who goes into campaigns not running scared can end up losing. Anything's possible,' he said.
