“He’s been weak, he’s been ineffective,” Republican candidate Mr Trump said of Mr Obama in a Fox News interview on Tuesday.

Mr Obama has questioned why Mr Trump’s party hasn’t disowned him.
Mr Trump has also turned on two senior figures in his own party who have publicly criticised him.
In an interview for the Washington Post, he refused to endorse House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senator John McCain, who are up for re-election in November.

Republican donor backs Clinton

Amid the feuding within Republican ranks, prominent party donor and fundraiser Meg Whitman has publicly endorsed Democrat Hillary Clinton, saying Donald Trump’s “demagoguery” had undermined the national fabric.
“To vote Republican out of party loyalty alone would be to endorse a candidacy that I believe has exploited anger, grievance, xenophobia and racial division,” she wrote on Facebook.
“Trump’s unsteady hand would endanger our prosperity and national security. His authoritarian character could threaten much more.”
In other developments:
A Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll suggested Hillary Clinton had extended her lead over Mr Trump to eight percentage points, from six points on Friday
A federal judge who has been a target of Mr Trump’s repeated scorn denied a media request to release videos of the candidate testifying in a lawsuit about the now-defunct Trump University; Mr Trump’s lawyers had argued the videos would have been used to tarnish his campaign.
French President Francois Hollande joined the chorus of criticism on Tuesday, saying that Mr Trump made people “feel nauseous”.
He warned that a Trump presidential election victory could herald a very strong turn to the right around the world.
‘Look at Ukraine’
Speaking to Fox, Mr Trump said Mr Obama had been “the worst president, maybe, in the history of our country”.
Mr Trump has also been condemned for his comments that appeared to back the Russian annexation of Crimea.
But he retorted: “I believe I know far more about foreign policy than he [Mr Obama] knows.
“Look at Ukraine. He talks about Ukraine [and] how tough he is with Russia. In the meantime they took over Crimea.”
