Real-estate and entertainment mogul Donald Trump said President Barack Obama's State of the Union address Tuesday will be irrelevant and he's "not counting on much" from the speech.

"I don't think it's going to be very relevant," Trump told "Fox & Friends" Monday. "I'm certainly not counting on much."

"It's going to be something we're going to sit back. We're going to watch. And, we're going to hope. But, there is not much hope," he added.

In his State of the Union address Tuesday evening, President Obama is expected to focus on expanding economic opportunity. To achieve that end, White House policies have centered on government assistance, including raising the minimum wage and expanding early childhood education.

Trump maintained President Obama should be talking about jobs, which he said were "fleeing this country." He also pointed to recent dismal unemployment numbers, and how economists he watched "couldn't believe how bad they were."

"What (he) really should be talking about during this speech is jobs," he said. "That's what he should be talking about is making the country strong again economically, bringing the country back. Because, it's just the opposite."

Trump argued what Americans wanted were answers and a government that "can get something done." He said people want to see hard work, communication and leadership from government.

"(American's are) out there working hard, building their businesses, showing up to work every day, playing by the rules. They expect the same from Washington," Trump said.
