President Barack Obama, just over a year ago, sat down for a "60 Minutes" interview — and one of the topics covered was then-Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump.
“He’s tapped into something that exists in the Republican Party that’s real,” Obama said about Trump during the October 2015 interview. “I think there is genuine anti-immigrant sentiment in the large portion of at least Republican primary voters. I don’t think it’s uniform. He knows how to get attention. He’s the classic reality TV character.”
When asked if he believed Trump had a shot at sitting in the Oval Office, Obama seemed confident that wouldn't happen: “I don’t think he’ll end up being president of the United States."
Trump won the 2016 presidential election Tuesday against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Obama echoed a similar sentiment before his final State of the Union address in January when Matt Lauer asked if he can "imagine Donald Trump standing up one day and delivering a State of the Union address?"
Obama laughed and answered, "Well, I can imagine it in a 'Saturday Night [Live]' skit."
