"It's not hosting a talk show or a reality show, it's not promotion, it's not marketing, it's hard. It's not a matter of pandering and doing whatever will get you in the news on a given day," Obama said.

In addition to his remarks about Trump, Obama criticized all the Republican contenders for the White House, saying that they have taken troubling positions on matters such as climate change and Muslims in America.

"[Trump] may up the ante in anti-Muslim sentiment but if you look at what the other candidates have said, that’s pretty troubling, too," Obama said.

Trump responded to Obama's comments during a campaign event in South Carolina calling it "a great compliment" and adding the president is doing a "lousy job."
