President Barack Obama took a shot at Donald Trump Tuesday, calling out the Republican presidential candidate for reportedly using his foundation's money to purchase a portrait of himself.

"One candidate's family foundation has saved countless lives around the world," Obama said, referring to the Clinton Foundation.

"The other candidate's foundation took money other people gave to his charity and then bought a six-foot-tall painting of himself. I mean, he had the taste not to go for the 10-foot version."

Obama made the remark while campaigning for Democrat Hillary Clinton in Philadelphia.

The Washington Post reported over the weekend that Trump spent $20,000 via his foundation to buy the aforementioned portrait.

Clinton herself was not at Tuesday's event with Obama, as she's resting in her Chappaqua, N.Y. home after her health scare over the weekend. Her campaign eventually disclosed she is suffering from pneumonia.

Clinton will return to the campaign trail Friday.
