The narrative of Democrats that the predicted loss of jobs due to Obamacare was a good thing because it offered workers more options is a "total deception," Donald Trump said Monday.

"It's total deception. And, it's very bad. And, it's certainly not the American dream. It's a different kind of American dream," the real-estate and entertainment billionaire told "Fox & Friends."

A report by the Congressional Budget Office last week predicted up to 2.5 million jobs could be lost by 2017 due to the effects of Obamacare. After first expressing shock, Democrats quickly called the report good news, saying it gave workers more flexibility, rather than tying people to jobs in order to keep health benefits.

Trump said it was an argument that could be hard for Republicans to counter, because government entitlements enabled some to "live better without having a job than they do with a job."

"It's an American dream where you don't have to do anything, and you can live very nicely," he said.

Ultimately, Trump said the solution would be "when the economy crashes." He said that would cause "riots to go back to where we used to be when we were great."
