Trump: Being Slammed By Obama Is ‘An Honor’

Donald Trump considers it a compliment when President Obama criticizes his controversial rhetoric and policy proposals, The Hill reported.

“I’m definitely on his mind. I mean, every time he speaks, he mentions my name, which is an honor. I think it’s probably not a bad thing,” the apparent Republican presidential nominee told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Wednesday night.

Obama’s latest attacks on the billionaire businessman came during a recent commencement address at Rutgers University. “Facts, evidence, reason, logic and understanding of science, those are good things,” the president told the graduates, clearly referring to Trump. “These are qualities you want in people making policy. We traditionally have valued those things, but if you were to listen to today’s political debate, you might wonder where this strain of anti-intellectualism came from. … Let me be clear as I can be: In politics and in life, ignorance is not a virtue. It’s not cool to not know what you’re talking about.”

Trump fired back on Twitter by calling Obama “the worst president in U.S. history.”

The candidate also revealed during the Fox News interview that he nearly ran against Obama four years ago. “I don’t know if that was a good decision or a bad decision,” he said. “I think it was actually … I think we’re going to do great this time. I think I would have beaten him last time, frankly, had I decided to run.”
