Donald Trump will not be president, says President Barack Obama, because it is a “serious matter.”
Speaking at an ASEAN economic summit in California, the president was asked by a reporter about Donald Trump.
“I still believe that Mr. Trump will not be president. And the reason is that I have great faith in the American people. “ said Barack Obama.
Donald Trump is the favorite in the Republican race to elect his party to the White House.
He has already won a state primary course and is leading the polls in South Carolina, where Republicans are voting on Feb. 20.
The electorate will not choose him, said Barack Obama, because “they recognize that being president is a serious matter.”
“It’s not a talk show or a reality show, it’s not a promotion, it’s not marketing, it’s hard. It’s not a matter of thinking and doing anything to get news on a given day. “
Donald Trump replied that it was a compliment to be criticized by a president who had done so much damage to the country.
His antipathy to Barack Obama dates back several years – he required the president to provide proof that he was born in the United States.
His election campaign has consistently garnered controversial remarks and policies.
Donald Trump has said he will deport 11 million undocumented immigrants, build a wall on the southern border paid for by Mexico, and that Muslims must be stopped from entering the United States.
His main rival is Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, but one of his other rivals, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, will hope for a better performance after a disappointment in Iowa and New Hampshire.
