President Barack Obama.

President Barack Obama strongly rebuked Donald Trump Tuesday, calling the Republican presidential nominee “unfit” for the presidency following his criticism of the family of a slain Muslim U.S. soldier. “Yes, I think the Republican nominee is unfit to serve as president,” Obama said at a White House news conference in a response to a question about whether Trump is fit for the Oval Office. “I said that last week, and he keeps on proving it. The notion that he would attack a Gold Star family that has made such extraordinary sacrifices to our country, the fact that he doesn’t appear to have basic knowledge around critical issues in Europe and the Middle East and Asia means that he’s woefully unprepared to do this job.”
