“I continue to believe Mr. Trump will not be president,” Obama said Tuesday (February 16) during a press conference in Rancho Mirage, CA. “And the reason is because I have a lot of faith in the American people.”

Obama, who has a little under a year left in his term, has long criticized Trump’s scare tactics that he’s used on his campaign trail, but also took aim at the entire GOP field stating a lot of Trump’s sentiments are being echoed by other Republican candidates. Obama continued and said he thinks the American people understand the severity of being leader of the free world, and understand it requires more than what Trump has showcased.
