President Barack Obama launched a broadside at presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump Friday, saying the presidency "is not a reality show."
Obama also said Trump's record needs to come under closer scrutiny.
"He has a long record that needs to be examined, and I think it's important for us to take seriously the statements he's made in the past," Obama said.
"We are in serious times and this is a really serious job. This is not entertainment. This is not a reality show."
Among other things the outspoken billionaire Trump is known for having starred on the TV reality show "The Apprentice."
