Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Sunday that President Obama “did a nice job” at his last White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

Obama had a couple jokes at Trump’s expense. “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace played a couple of them for Trump, including one gag that Trump would be good at foreign policy because he had met with “Miss Sweden” and “Miss Argentina” and that he could successfully close Guantanamo Bay because he had experience running waterfront properties into the ground.

Trump responded that he has “the best waterfront properties in the world so I don’t even know what he’s talking about.”

Trump said he didn’t attend the event, but that his children did. Wallace again asked Trump for his reaction to the jokes.

“Well, I think it was fine. It’s a comedy. It’s fine. I thought he did a nice job, it was good,” Trump said. “I wasn’t there. But I thought he did a nice job.”
