Trump treats prez race as ‘infomercial’, says Obama
US President Barack Obama on Monday blasted Republican nominee Donald Trump, saying that he treats the presidential race as an “infomercial” and shows no interest in gaining “rudimentary knowledge” required to make “hard decisions” on the job.
Obama, who arrived in the city on Sunday for his final UN General Assembly session, addressed 65 people at a fundraiser hosted by restaurateur Danny Meyer and his wife, here.
Calling Trump, 70, as the “other guy” in the election, Obama reiterated that the New York billionaire was not qualified to be President of the US and slammed him for not showing any interest in gaining knowledge required to make tough decisions on a daily basis in the White House.
“This guy is not qualified to be President. And he shows no interest in even gaining the rudimentary knowledge required to make really hard decisions on a day-to-day basis. There’s no curiosity, there’s no desire to get up to speed. It’s an infomercial. It’s a reality show,” Obama said.
