This week President Obama said he still doesn’t think that GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump will get elected as President of the United States. On Wednesday, Trump responded to Obama’s comments by calling them a “badge of honor.”
“He’s going to go down as one of the worst, perhaps the worst president in the history of the United States,” Trump said about the president during an interview on “Fox & Friends.”
“And, you know, it’s interesting, when they make those statements, that means that, in a way, it’s a badge of honor, because that’s the one that they’re looking at. Hillary, the same thing,” Trump added, which is a reference to Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton.
“The last person Hillary wants to run is me. And as you see, I’m beating her in the polls, so I think we’re going to do just fine.”
As to Obama’s comments about how being a reality television celebrity doesn’t qualify someone to become president, this is how Trump responded:
“And it’s not being a community organizer, which is what he was, that was about it,” Trump said.
“Let me tell you, I built a great company, one of the great companies, some of the great assets of the world, very little debt, tremendous cash flow, it’s the thinking our country needs,” Trump added. “We need a different thinking than guys like we have right now.”
