Billionaire developer Donald Trump says the criticism of President Barack Obama for shaking hands with Cuban leader Raul Castro and taking a "selfie" photo with two other world leaders during the memorial service for Nelson Mandela is overblown.

"I don't view it as very serious," Trump said Wednesday on CNN's "Piers Morgan Live."  "There's certainly nothing wrong with shaking hands."

Trump did note that the 'selfie' with British Prime Minister David Cameron and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt "was a tough picture," but added that the event had a celebratory tone.

Much more serious than either of those controversies, he said, is how the Obamacare rollout continues to be a disaster.

"I know a lot about websites," Trump said. "I've never spent a billion and a half dollars for a website. Neither has anyone else. It's the most expensive website ever done and, by the way, not the most complex."

The disastrous rollout, along with Obama's broken promise that people could keep healthcare plans they like, has had a terrible impact on Obama's legacy, Trump said.

With Democrats seeking re-election in 2014 "running for the hills,"  Trump said, "It's going to get worse."
