Speaking at the Asean economic summit in California, the president was asked by a reporter about the presidential prospects for Mr Trump.

The two-term leader made his views clear:
“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. And I think they recognise that being President is a serious job. It’s not hosting a talk show. Or a reality show.”

The billionaire businessman took the out going president’s opinion as a campaign boost: “This man has done such a bad job. He has set us back so far. And for him to say that is a great compliment if you want to know the truth.”

Just a reminder: #Trump was Obama's biggest fan until he needed the racist demographic. #UniteBlue#libcrib#tcotpic.twitter.com/fQcMZi05ve
