WASHINGTON: Donald Trump has hit back at Barack Obama for terming him unfit for presidency, saying the "terrible president" would go down as the worst in American history.

"Well he's a terrible president. He'll probably go down as the worst president in the history of our country, he's been a total disaster," Trump told Sinclair Broadcast group in an interview yesterday.

"You look at what happens in the Middle East, in Syria and his line in the sand. I think it just means he's concerned I'm going to win," he claimed.

"Don't forget last time he said I would never get the nomination, now he is saying I wouldn't get the election now all of a sudden he said the other day maybe I can win the election, no I guess he probably has to say that kind of thing," Trump said when asked about Obama's statement yesterday.

"I think the Republican nominee is unfit to serve as president. I said so last week and he keeps on proving it," Obama told reporters at a joint news conference with the Singapore Prime Minister yesterday.

Trump reiterated his stand and said he does not regret having criticised the parents of a slain Pakistani-origin American Muslim soldier Humayun Khan who was killed by a suicide bomber in Iraq in 2004.

"I don't regret anything. I said nice things about the son and I feel that very strongly but of course I was hit very hard from the stage and you know it's just one of those things but no I don't regret anything," he said.

Trump's own party leaders have come out openly against the Republican presidential nominee for being critical of family members of the soldier. He also did not had regret calling his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton as a devil.

"No, I don't think so, I think it is what it is. She's a very deceitful person, she lies, she cheats, no I don't think that's too far at all," he said. He maintained his belief that the upcoming presidential election is rigged.

"I'm talking about at the voter booth. I mean we've seen a lot of things over the years and now without the voter ID's and all the things going on and some bad court cases have come down," Trump said.

"I just hear things and I just feel it and I felt it having to do with the primaries. I looked at Bernie sanders I said 'he isn’t going to win." "I thought this whole thing was rigged and I think the general election is gonna be, we're gonna have a lot of problems we have to be very careful," Trump said.

During the interview Trump refused to entertain the challenge posed to him by Warren Buffet on revealing his tax returns, saying he does not know Warren Buffet and has never met him.
