During Wednesday night’s MSNBC Republican presidential town hall event, front-runner Donald Trump indicated that had he made a presidential bid in 2012, he would be the one sitting in the White House — not President Obama.
His remark came in response to Obama’s assertion that Trump could not be elected president.
“I continue to believe Mr. Trump will not be president,” Obama said at a Tuesday press conference. “Being president is a serious job. It’s not hosting a talk show or a reality show. It’s not promotion, it’s not marketing. It’s hard.”
After MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski recited the president’s remarks, Trump threw them right back in his face.
“I tell you what, if I would have run four years ago, he wouldn’t be president right now.”
He added that in his opinion, the president takes him very seriously, and that Obama will “go down in history as one of our worst presidents.”
