Obama Says Trump Won't Be President: 'It's Not Hosting a Talk Show'

Obama said he has faith Americans still see the presidency as "a serious job."

"I continue to believe Mr. Trump will not be president," Obama said while speaking at a press conference in Rancho Mirage, California. "And the reason is because I have a lot of faith in the American people."

Obama told reporters he believed Americans still see the presidency as "a serious job."

“It’s not hosting a talk show, or a reality show. It’s not promotion, it’s not marketing,” Obama said. “It’s hard and a lot of people count on us getting it right.”

Trump, speaking at a campaign event in South Carolina, immediately hit back, saying Obama is doing a "lousy job."

"He has set us back so far, and for him to actually say that is a great compliment, if you want to know the truth," Trump said.
