-- President Obama says that Republican front-runner Donald Trump is not equipped to deal with the challenges of being president.
“I think that he is not somebody who even within the Republican Party can be considered as equipped to deal with the problems of this office, but look, we live in a democracy," President Obama said in an interview Monday with WMUR, an ABC affiliate in New Hampshire.
If Trump does become the Republican nominee, Obama said he's confident that the Democratic nominee will win in a general election match-up.
"If in fact the Republicans nominate Mr. Trump, then it’s going to be an interesting fall season," he said. "I’m confident that ultimately the Democrat in that circumstance will win.”
"They say Donald lacks the foreign policy experience to be president. But in fairness he has spent years meeting with leaders from around the world: Miss Sweden, Miss Argentina, Miss Azerbaijan," the president joked.
