Oh boy, that Donald Trump sure doesn't hold back, does he?

The outspoken real estate tycoon hopped on Twitter earlier today to blame President Barack Obama for the current unrest in Baltimore and even went so far as to call him an "incompetent leader."

"Wow, 15 policemen hurt in Baltimore, some badly! Where is the National Guard. Police must get tough, and fast! Thugs must be stopped. Blatant and rampant property destruction in Baltimore as the police stand by and watch. Should be a lesson on how NOT to handle riots. SAD!"

Trump's tweet spree continued, "Our great African American President hasn't exactly had a positive impact on the thugs who are so happily and openly destroying Baltimore! Now that the ineffective Baltimore Police have allowed the city to be destroyed, are the U.S. taxpayers expected to rebuild it (again)?"

Naturally, his war of words didn't quite end there. Trump pointed the finger at Baltimore's mayor, saying, "she wanted to give the rioters 'space to destroy'—another real genius!"

And before he began his regularly scheduled tweets about his upcoming real estate endeavors, Trump had a final message for POTUS:

"Our country has to come together. We have to start working with, and really liking, each other. The whole world is watching Baltimore…President Obama, you have a big job to do. Go to Baltimore and bring both sides together. With proper leadership, it can be done! Do it."

Of course, this isn't exactly the first time that Trump has slammed Obama. And considering the big election on the horizon, could he be finally ready to tackle a political career? We'll undoubtedly soon find out!
