President Barack Obama saved his jokes about Donald Trump for late in his White House Correspondentsâ€™ Dinner remarks, but didnâ€™t spare the Republican front runner.
Trump attended last yearâ€™s dinner but was not in the room this year. Obama joked that it should be the perfect place for Trump a room full of reporters, celebrities and cameras.
â€œIs this dinner too tacky for the Donald?â€ Obama said. â€œIs he at home eating a Trump steak, tweeting out insults to Angela Merkel? What is he doing?â€
He praised Trumpâ€™s foreign policy chops, noting that the businessman previously owned the Miss Universe pageant and has extensive experience with â€œMiss Sweden, Miss Argentina, Miss Azerbaijan.â€
Obama also noted one area where Trumpâ€™s experience might come in handy â€” closing the Guantanamo Bay detainment facility.
â€œTrump knows a thing or two about running waterfront properties into the ground,â€ he joked.
