U.S. President Barack Obama, speaking in California at a press conference following the meeting with the leaders of the countries of South-East Asia, estimated the growing momentum of the campaign.
Particularly sharp criticism Obama has put Donald trump. The President expressed confidence that he didn’t become his successor. The reason, according to the President, will become the common sense of American voters.
«The President is a serious job, not a reality show. This is not advertising and not marketing. The main thing here – not what you see on the news. It’s hard work, and people hope that we will not let them down. You need to be able to find common ground with other leaders, to know the history of their countries,» he said.
The President also questioned trump’s willingness to take the post of Supreme commander. «The one who is in my place, always carries the nuclear codes. He will send a fire on 21-year-old guys, to take care of the health of the banking system», — reminded the head of state.
Commenting on these statements, trump said that he perceives them as a compliment. «It does not matter if you criticize one President who fell at his post». he added.
