Donald Trump responded to President Barack Obama calling him unfit to be president with an indictment of the current president as well as Hillary Clinton’s leadership.

In a statement released by the campaign about Obama’s “failed leadership,” Trump said, “Obama-Clinton have single-handedly destabilized the Middle East, handed Iraq, Libya and Syria to ISIS, and allowed our personnel to be slaughtered at Benghazi. Then they put Iran on the path to nuclear weapons. Then they allowed dozens of veterans to die waiting for medical care that never came.” (RELATED: Obama: Trump Is ‘Unfit’ To Be President [VIDEO])

“Hillary Clinton put the whole country at risk with her illegal email server, deleted evidence of her crime, and lied repeatedly about her conduct which endangered us all,” Trump argued. “They released criminal aliens into our country who killed one innocent American after another — like Sarah Root and Kate Steinle — and have repeatedly admitted migrants later implicated in terrorism. They have produced the worst recovery since the Great Depression. They have shipped millions of our best jobs overseas to appease their global special interests. They have betrayed our security and our workers, and Hillary Clinton has proven herself unfit to serve in any government office.”

Clinton “is reckless with her emails, reckless with regime change, and reckless with American lives. Our nation has been humiliated abroad and compromised by radical Islam brought onto our shores. We need change now,” Trump said.

Earlier in the day during a press conference at the White House, Obama said that Trump was “unfit” to be president and “woefully unprepared to do this job.”
