President Barack Obama is calling out Donald Trump over his claims of being America's most successful businessman, according to a Bloomberg Businessweek interview with Obama.

"There's no successful businessman in America who actually thinks the most successful businessman in the country is Donald Trump," Obama said in the interview. "I know those guys, and so do you, and I guarantee you, that's not their view."

The president has always been clear about his view of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. Obama has repeatedly said that the billionaire New Yorker is not suited for the White House.

Earlier this month, The New York Times reported that during a visit to the Treasury Department, the president called Trump out for using "language that singles out immigrants and suggests entire religious communities are complicit in violence," although he didn't mention the candidate by name.

In the Bloomberg interview, published under the headline "The 'Anti-Business' President Who's Been Good for Business," Obama defended his economic record.

"Do not believe people when they tell you they wish they could go back to the good old days. Because the good old days aren't," the president said. That prompted a question about Trump, who is a vocal supporter of a return to pre-Obama policies, and led to Obama's dismissive response.
