Trump: Obama ‘doesn’t have a clue’

Greg Nash
Donald Trump slammed President Obama as clueless late Wednesday, trading barbs with the commander in chief after he knocked the presumptive GOP presidential nominee for lacking serious proposals.
 
“This is a president who doesn’t have a clue,” Trump said during a rally in Sacramento, Calif., before threatening to unleash harsher attacks should Obama become more vocal against him. 
 
{mosads}”He’s going to start campaigning. Well, if he campaigns, that means I’m allowed to hit him just like I hit Bill Clinton, I guess, right?” Trump said.
 
“If he doesn’t, I don’t care. But if he campaigns, and I think he wants to, because he wants to keep this terrible agenda going where everybody is ripping us, where the world is ripping us off.”
 
Trump has leveled personal attacks at the Clintons, including raising assault allegations against former President Bill Clinton from the 1990s that Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton has declined to respond to.
 
Obama hit Trump during a PBS town hall that aired Wednesday, referencing Trump’s promise to bring jobs back to the United States while discussing manufacturing.
 
“He just says, ‘Well, I’m going to negotiate a better deal.’ Well, what, how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is he doesn’t have an answer,” Obama said.
 
Obama also went after Trump during a speech Wednesday afternoon at a high school in Indiana in what was billed as an official White House event on the economy.
 
The audience booed at one of Obama’s veiled references to Trump. “No booing,” Obama said. “We’re voting.” He also blasted the businessman’s tax plan and pledge to roll back Wall Street reform regulations as “crazy.”
