President Barack Obama has cracked about the ongoing US presidential elections, at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

Talking to about 2600 dinner guests at the Washington Hilton he said, "The Republican establishment is incredulous [Trump] is the nominee.

"They say he lacks foreign policy experience. But he's been meeting foreign leaders: Miss Sweden, Miss Argentina, Miss Azerbaijan. Because he knows a thing or two about running waterfront properties into the ground."

Turning the tables on himself, he said ‘I do apologise that I was a little late tonight. I was running on CPT (coloured people’s time )- which stands for jokes that white people should not make.

“This is my eighth and final appearance and I am excited. If this material works well, I’m going to use it at Goldman Sachs next year earn me some serious Tubmans.”
