On Tuesday, President Obama said Donald Trump was “unfit” to serve as president of the United States. Obama suggested that the GOP should drop their nominee.
“If you are repeatedly having to say in very strong terms that what he has said is unacceptable, why are you still endorsing him?” Obama said during a press conference. “There has to come a point at which you say, ’enough.’”

Trump, of course, didn’t take kindly to the president’s comments, firing back a statement of his own.
“Obama-Clinton have single-handedly destabilized the Middle East, handed Iraq, Libya and Syria to ISIS, and allowed our personnel to be slaughtered at Benghazi. Then they put Iran on the path to nuclear weapons. Then they allowed dozens of veterans to die waiting for medical care that never came,” the statement said in part.
“Hillary Clinton has proven herself unfit to serve in any government office,” Trump continued. “She is reckless with her emails, reckless with regime change, and reckless with American lives. Our nation has been humiliated abroad and compromised by radical Islam brought onto our shores. We need change now.”
