President Barack Obama refuses to take Donald Trump seriously, even though the New Yorker is close to winning the Republican nomination for president.

In an interview with WMUR’s Josh McElveen, Obama asserts that even Republicans think that the controversial Trump is unsuited to hold the presidential office.

“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,” he said.

Obama added in the interview that if Trump clinched the Republican nomination it would be good news for Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders.

He said in an interview with KSAZ’s Kari Lake that he didn’t even think about Trump.

“I haven’t thought too much about it because I don’t think that Donald Trump is going to be president,” he said.

“And you still stand by that?” asked Lake.

“Absolutely,” Obama replied.
