“Well how exactly are you going to do that? What exactly are you going to do? There’s no answer to it,” Obama said.
“He just says, ‘Well, I’m going to negotiate a better deal.’ Well, what, how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is, he doesn’t have an answer.”
The Hill reports:
Obama has slammed Trump in the past.
During a speech Wednesday, the president bashed one of the candidate’s central arguments that international trade and immigration have hurt American voters. He called the presumptive GOP nominee’s pledge to roll back Wall Street regulations “crazy.”
“That will not help us win,” Obama said of Trump. “That is not going to make your lives better.”
Trump often talks about bringing back manufacturing jobs while on the campaign trail and pledges to place tariffs on companies that move outside of the country.
