It's no secret that Donald Trump doesn't see eye to eye with the Democratic Party. While the president is currently dealing with scandals growing by the day in the White House involving members of his own party, his predecessor is also not a fan.

Obama on Trump

During the early stages of the 2016 presidential election, it became clear that Donald Trump was going to be a legitimate force. As the months rolled on, the former host of "The Apprentice" gained steam and was able to ride that momentum to the Republican nomination last summer. While Trump made a lot of promises on the campaign trail, it was his controversial rhetoric and straight-shooting mentality that earned him support from many Americans who were fed up with "business as usual" in Washington.

One of Trump's top talking points was to take shots at the then current president of the time, Barack Obama. Trump's issues with Obama started well before he even announced his candidacy for president, as he was the highest-profiled individual to take part in the "birther" movement that questioned where the 44th U.S. president was born. It became routine for Trump to bash Obama, doing so during the primary and general election on his way to victory. However, the two appeared to get along during the transition period, as Obama went out of his way to help Trump prepare for office, with the billionaire estate mogul even admitting, "he's a great guy." Despite this, as reported in People magazine, and later Mediate, on May 17, Obama is not impressed with what is happening in the White House.

According to a People magazine cover story that comes out this week, friends of Barack Obama quoted the former president when it comes to his true feelings about Donald Trump.

"He's nothing but a bullsh*tter," Obama reportedly told his friends in regards to Trump and the phone call the two had on election night. In addition, those close to Obama confirm that his view of the current commander in chief "hasn't gotten any better."

Former Chief Strategist for Barack Obama's presidential campaigns, David Axelrod, also spoke to People magazine and said that while the former president has negative feelings about Donald Trump, it's highly unlikely that he will make them known to the public at any point in the near future.

"(Obama's) very respectful of the appropriate role of a former president," Axelrod explained.

While Barack Obama and other Democrats continue to have ill feelings towards the current president, Donald Trump's biggest problem is within his own party and staff. Recent reports revealed that Trump shared classified information with Russian officials, as well as attempted to have James Comey drop and investigation into Michael Flynn prior to fire him, leaving Republicans in a difficult spot in regards to whether or not they should stand by the president, or move forward in opposition.
