President Obama had some not-so-kind words concerning Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. During an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek, the president flat out stated that Trump is an overrated businessman.
Obama was asked if he felt “annoyed” by the fact that the Republican, who says he wants to take the country back in time, was “America’s most successful businessman, at least by his own reckoning.”
“Well, I—there’s no successful businessman in America who actually thinks the most successful businessman in the country is Donald Trump,” the president quipped as reporters laughed.
“I know those guys, and so do you, and I guarantee you, that’s not their view.”
Here’s the audio interview with President Obama.
The president eloquently touched on what many people in the business world already know about Trump: that he’s a toxic businessman.
Donald Trump has screwed over more people in business, including his business partners, than just about anyone in his line of work. Trump brags about using debt to weasel his way out of financial obligations.
He speaks of workers in companies he ruined as if they didn’t matter. He admits he’s greedy, but spins it as a positive stating that he wants to be “greedy for America.”
And let’s not forget about Trump University, where the billionaire taught students valuable lessons about how he conducts his business by cheating the sh*t out of them.
Trump has mastered the art of spinning bullsh*t into gold, but most Americans are smart enough to recognize that he’s a con artist with no real credibility. The only question that remains is if enough Americans will take the time to vote against him in November. If not, then people better get used to having to facepalm every time Trump does or says something to embarrass America.
