President Barack Obama was asked Friday whether he had seen a much-discussed tweet from presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump the day before.
“Did you see Donald Trump’s taco-bowl tweet,” a reporter asked Obama during a Friday news conference, referring to the mogul’s Cinco de Mayo-themed posting.
Obama responded that he had “no thoughts” on Trump’s tweets.
“As a general rule, I don’t pay attention to Mr. Trump’s tweets. I think that will be true for the next six months. So, if you could just file that one,” he added, chuckling.
In the tweet, Trump was pictured with a taco bowl he was apparently enjoying on Cinco de Mayo. He added in the tweet: “I love Hispanics!”
Obama on Friday also weighed in on Trump’s new status as the presumptive nominee.
