Donald Trump Fires Back At President Obama: 'He Is Doing A Terrible Job Running The Country'

Republican candidate Donald Trump dismissed President Barack Obama's scathing criticism of the GOP presidential hopefuls' complaints about harsh debate moderators.

"[Obama] is doing a terrible job running the country," Trump shot back to ABC's "Good Morning America." "He may say the Republicans are not getting along in the debate, and it's not us. We're being asked very rude questions, many of them directed at me."

Trump, who has verbally attacked CNBC and its moderators several times for their harsh tone during the third Republican presidential debate, said that he "doesn't care too much" about the debate format, ABC reports.

"[The moderators have] been hitting me one way or the other, and I've been doing very well based on everything and based on polling," Trump said. "I just want to have a debate. I like the debates. They can ask tough questions."

The business mogul added that he just wants to "answer the questions and be done with it."

The president pointed out that, while several GOP candidates have called him "weak" on foreign affairs, "it turns out they can't handle a bunch of CNBC moderators," he said on Nov. 2, according to CNN.

"Let me tell you, if you can't handle those guys, then I don't think the Chinese and the Russians are going to be too worried about you," Obama retorted at a Democratic fundraiser.

But Trump, who has fallen behind Carson in recent polls, set his sights on his rival candidate. While he likes Carson, the former neurosurgeon lacks the "temperament" to lead the country internationally and economically, Trump said.

"I think that Ben just doesn't have the experience," he told "Good Morning America."

Trump went on to note that being a president "is not [Carson's] thing."

"I'm going to make the greatest years you've ever seen on trade," he explained on the program. "We're going to run the military properly. I'm going to take care of the vets. Ben can't do those things."

Trump also attacked Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who he said "has no chance" and is "wasting his time" by campaigning, after Bush said in a speech that Trump lacked the "experience implementing conservative ideas."

"You can't just tell Congress, 'You're fired' and go to commercial break," Bush fired back.
