Donald Trump does not to let one criticize his candidacy without responding, especially if it’s the President of United States.

Trump took a shot at President Obama’s “60 Minutes” interview Sunday, during which Obama called the GOP 2016 frontrunner “the classic reality TV character” and a “great publicity-seeker.” On Twitter, Trump called the interview “terrible” and said that his appearance on the show last month was “much better.”

On Sunday’s “60 Minutes” episode, Obama acknowledged that Trump had “tapped into something that exists in the Republican Party that’s real.”

“I think there is genuine anti-immigrant sentiment in the large portion of at least Republican primary voters. I don’t think it’s uniform,” Obama said.

He added, “I don’t think he’ll end up being President of the United States.”
