Obama: 'I Continue to Believe Trump Will Not Be President'




    President Barack Obama reaffirmed his belief that the American people will realize that Donald Trump is not fit to hold the highest office in the nation and it's "is not a reality show."

    "I continue to believe 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 recognize that being president is a serious job," Obama said Tuesday, NBC News reported. 

    Trump leads in nationwide polls and won the New Hampshire primary last week. His success comes despite — or because of — controversial statements about immigration from Mexico and a plan to temporarily bar Muslims from entering the U.S.

    Trump shrugged off the comments, and said they were "actually a great compliment" and that Obama "has done such a lousy job as president."
