    President Barack Obama has made it clear that electing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to be the next US president would be perilous for the United States, White House Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz said on Tuesday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Schultz made the comments when asked why Obama does not mention Trump by name when commenting on the Republican presidential nominee.

    "I don’t think he’s shied away from making the argument of why he thinks that his [Trump’s] election would be a risky path for the United States," Schultz stated during a press briefing.

    On Wednesday night, Obama will address the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he is expected to talk about why Hillary Clinton is the better choice to succeed him as president than Trump.
