A Donald Trump presidency might have been predicted by President Barack Obama two years ago, suggesting voters might want "that new car smell" after his second term was completed, presidential historian Michael Beschloss said early Wednesday.

In an interview with MSNBC, Beschloss argued "if you look through American history and go back through 200 years, it's extremely rare that one political party controls the White House for three terms in a row."

He recounted in November 2014, "President Obama made a little noticed comment . . . talking about 2016 and who might succeed him.

"He said, 'You know it may be impossible for me to pass along this job to a Democratic successor . . . The people may want that new car smell,'" Beschloss recalled.

Beschloss also pointed out a President Trump would be the "the first president that we've ever had with zero military experience, zero public service experience, and also probably the smallest relationship with the leaders of his party of any president that I can think of.

"And not only that, if you're thinking of things that we've never seen before, the talk both from Mr. Trump and the people around him, that he may undermine the sitting Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, and try to look for someone else and throw Ryan out."
