President Obama also sat down to discuss the state of the Republican Party and how he feels about their presumptive nominee Donald Trump.

“Speaking of reality TV…,” Jimmy said. “Do you think the Republicans are happy with their choice?”

“We are, but I don’t know how they feel,” Obama expressed. “What’s happened in that party, culminating in this current nomination, is not something that’s good for the country as a whole, and not something that Republicans should wish for.”

President Obama Releases Lengthy Statement on Muhammad Ali's Death

President Barack Obama and his wife, First Lady Michelle Obama, have released a joint statement addressing the death of boxing legend Muhammad Ali.

Muhammad Ali was The Greatest. Period. If you just asked him, he’d tell you. He’d tell you he was the double greatest; that he’d ‘handcuffed lightning, thrown thunder into jail.’ But what made The Champ the greatest – what truly separated him from everyone else – is that everyone else would tell you pretty much the same thing,” the statement started.

“Like everyone else on the planet, Michelle and I mourn his passing. But we’re also grateful to God for how fortunate we are to have known him, if just for a while; for how fortunate we all are that The Greatest chose to grace our time,” they couple continued.

“In my private study, just off the Oval Office, I keep a pair of his gloves on display, just under that iconic photograph of him – the young champ, just 22 years old, roaring like a lion over a fallen Sonny Liston. I was too young when it was taken to understand who he was – still Cassius Clay, already an Olympic Gold Medal winner, yet to set out on a spiritual journey that would lead him to his Muslim faith, exile him at the peak of his power, and set the stage for his return to greatness with a name as familiar to the downtrodden in the slums of Southeast Asia and the villages of Africa as it was to cheering crowds in Madison Square Garden,” they added.

President Obama References Donald Trump in Rutgers University Commencement Speech (Video)

President Obama is awarded an honorary degree while on stage to give the commencement speech at Rutgers University on Sunday (May 15) in Piscataway, N.J.

The 54-year-old Commander-in-Chief covered a lot of topics in his speech, including an indirect reference to Donald Trump‘s desire to build a wall around the U.S. borders.

“The world is more interconnected than ever before, and it’s becoming more connected every day. Building walls won’t change that,” Obama said. “Isolating or disparaging Muslims, suggesting they should be treated when they come to this country, that is not just a betrayal of our values -– that’s not just a betrayal of who we are –- we alienate the very communities at home or abroad who are our most important partners in the fight against violent extremism.”

President Obama Takes Jabs at Donald Trump & Other Potential Candidates at White House Correspondents' Dinner (Video)

President Obama waves to the crowd while walking to the microphone for his speech at the 2016 White House Correspondents’ Dinner held at the Washington Hilton on Saturday (April 30) in Washington, D.C.

The 54-year-old Commander-in-Chief left no potential Presidential candidates out as he took jabs at Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Ted Cruz, and more.

“The Republican establishment is incredulous that he’s the likely nominee. Shocking!” he said. “They say Donald lacks the foreign policy experience to be president. But in fairness, he has spent years meeting with leaders from around the world: Ms Sweden, Ms. Argentina, Ms. Azerbaijan.”

Obama also joked, “Alright, that’s probably enough. I’ve got more material. I don’t want to spend too much time on the Donald. Following [the press'] lead, I want to show some restraint. Because I think we can all agree, from the start, he’s got the appropriate amount of coverage befitting his candidacy. I hope you all are proud of yourselves.”
