"When the history is written of this era, this is how you'll be remembered: He was the first black president," Moore said during the Toronto Film Festival, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

"OK, not a bad accomplishment, but that's it," Moore said on video. "That's it, Mr. Obama. 100 years from now: 'He was the first black American that got elected president.' And that's it. Eight years of your life and that's what people are going to remember. Boy, I got a feeling, knowing you, that — you'd probably wish you were remembered for a few other things, a few other things you could've done."

Moore also said he wrote Obama a letter after the president claimed during the 2012 election that his move to bail out the auto industry saved Detroit.

"I said, 'Dear President Obama. God bless you. But you did not save Detroit. You saved General Motors, you saved Chrysler. Detroit at this point would stand a better chance if they were an Iraqi or Syrian city in terms of getting some sort of help,'" Moore recalled. "And I think Obama, sadly, has done many many good things but he's also been a huge disappointment."

Detroit filed for bankruptcy in 2013.
