Obama ridicules Trump’s ‘whacky’ ideas
U.S. President Barack Obama urged the media and voters Thursday to challenge Donald Trump’s “whacky” proposals, and he reiterated that the Republican nominee isn’t qualified to be president, The Washington Times reports.
“The most important thing for the public and the press is to just listen to what he says and follow up and ask questions to what appear to be either contradictory or uninformed or outright whacky ideas,” Obama said of the Republican presidential nominee, according to WT.
“I don’t think the guy is qualified to be president of the United States and every time he speaks that opinion is confirmed,” Obama said, speaking at a press conference after wrapping up a summit in Laos.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Donald Trump had said he could become friends with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
He also said in a televised interview that Putin is “far more” of a leader than Barack Obama, making no secret of his admiration for the Russian leader, who, in turn, last year praised the U.S. businessman as “very outstanding”, The China Post wrote citing AFP.
