WASHINGTON (TheBlaze/AP) — President Barack Obama says it would good for Donald Trump to visit the Smithsonian Institution's new National Museum of African American History and Culture that is opening this weekend.

Obama was disputing the Republican presidential nominee's assertion that "African-American communities are absolutely in the worst shape that they've ever been in before. Ever, ever, ever."

In an interview broadcast Friday on ABC's "Good Morning America," Obama said: "I think even most 8-year-olds would tell you that whole slavery thing wasn't very good for black people. Jim Crow wasn't very good for black people."

When asked what advice he would give Hillary Clinton ahead of Monday's debate with Trump, Obama said she should be herself and explain what motivates her.

He said: "She's in this for the right reasons."

Obama's remarks on Trump begin after the 2:10 mark in the below clip:
