“He’s going to go down as one of the worst, perhaps the worst president in the history of the United States,” Trump said of Obama on “Fox & Friends.”

“And, you know, it’s interesting, when they make those statements, that means that, in a way, it’s a badge of honor, because that’s the one that they’re looking at. Hillary, the same thing,” he added, referring to Democratic primary front-runner Hillary ClintonHillary Rodham ClintonAide: Trump held back on Bill Clinton’s infidelities Trump's and Clinton's favorite words during the debate  Cruz: Clinton 'tired' and 'formulaic' during debate MORE.

“The last person Hillary wants to run is me. And as you see, I’m beating her in the polls, so I think we’re going to do just fine.”

Trump also responded to Obama’s remark that being a reality TV star does not qualify one to be president.

“And it’s not being a community organizer, which is what he was, that was about it,” he said.

“Let me tell you, I built a great company, one of the great companies, some of the great assets of the world, very little debt, tremendous cash flow, it’s the thinking our country needs,” he added. “We need a different thinking than guys like we have right now.”
