US President Barack Obama has said that he didn’t think the controversial billionaire businessman, Donald Trump, will not become president because it was ‘serious job.’
He said, “I continue to believe that Mr Trump will not be president. And the reason is because I have a lot of faith in the American people. The electorate will not pick him because they recognise that being president is a serious job.”
While speaking at the Asean economic summit in California, Obama was asked to comment on Trump by a reporter.
He said, “It’s not hosting a talk show or a reality show, it’s not promotion, it’s not marketing, it’s hard. It’s not a matter of pandering and doing whatever will get you in the news on a given day.”
Trump responded by saying it was a privilege to be criticised by a president, who, according to him, had done so much damage to the country.
Trump, a billionaire businessman is seeking presidential nomination for the Republican. He has already one one primary in New Hampshire and is leading in South Carolina, where the primary is scheduled to be held this weekend.
His campaign has been marred with series of controversies including his demand for banning of Muslims’ entry into the US and his plans to deport of 11 million undocumented immigrants.
