BBC – Republican Donald Trump will not be president because it’s a “serious job”, President Barack Obama has said.
“I continue to believe that Mr Trump will not be president. And the reason is because I have a lot of faith in the American people,” said Mr Obama.
Mr Trump, a billionaire businessman, is the frontrunner in the race to be his party’s choice for the White House.
He has won one state primary already, and leads the polls in South Carolina, where Republicans vote on Saturday.
Speaking at the Asean economic summit in California, the president was asked by a reporter about Mr Trump.
The electorate will not pick him, said Mr Obama, because “they recognise that being president is a serious job”.
