Pres. Obama blasted 2016 GOP Presidential front runner Donald Trump in a recent 60 Minutes interview, saying the real estate mogul won’t replace him as President. Trump responded with a rebuke of Obama, calling him “sad.”
According to The Hill:
“Donald Trump is the Republican presidential front-runner, but President Obama says he won’t be the next president.
In an interview with CBS News’s “60 Minutes,” Obama dismissed Trump as a “publicity seeker” and “reality TV character” who is profiting from an “anti-immigrant sentiment” among GOP primary voters.
“I think that he is tapped into something that exists in the Republican Party that’s real,” the president said in the interview that aired Sunday. “He knows how to get attention.
“I don’t think he’ll end up being president of the United States,” he said.
Trump fired back on Twitter, calling Obama’s interview “terrible…”
“I thought it was a little bit sad, because there was so much negativity,” Trump said.
Trump has remained at the top of the polls, even as his comments on illegal immigration and women have sparked controversy.”
