President Donald Trump responded Sunday to comments from Barack Obama criticizing his response to the coronavirus, calling the former president "grossly incompetent."

Over the weekend, Obama gave a virtual commencement speech for 2020 graduates and made several remarks that seemed directed at Trump and his administration.

"Doing what feels good, what's convenient, what's easy - that's how little kids think," Obama said. "Unfortunately, a lot of so-called grown-ups, including some with fancy titles and important jobs, still think that way - which is why things are so screwed up."

President Trump was asked about Obama's comments on Sunday as he was returning from Camp David and didn't hold back.

"Look, he was an incompetent president. That's all I can say. Grossly incompetent," Trump said.
