President Barack Obama professed some bold assertions on his former advisor David Axelrod's podcast that aired Monday.

On episode 108 of "The Axe Files," Obama told Axelrod during the 50-minute segment that he was "confident" that had he been able to run for a third term, he would have been able to maintain a majority of the votes and beat President-elect Donald Trump.

Not being one to take criticism lightly, Trump voiced his opinion on Obama's chest puffing via his usual medium: Twitter.

Trump tweeted out:
