Former President Donald Trump reportedly paid a compliment to one of his biggest political rivals, former President Barack Obama, during a Florida ticketed event on Saturday.
“I liked him,” Trump said of Obama while speaking at the “History Tour” with Bill O’Reilly in Sunrise, Florida. He also called the former Democratic president “smart and sharp.”

In addition to the compliment, Trump also reportedly told the crowd that Obama's administration created “tremendous division” in the country, according to the Sun Sentinel.
Trump teamed up with O'Reilly earlier this year for the national tour to discuss the history of his administration.
“These will be wonderful but hard-hitting sessions where we’ll talk about the real problems happening in the U.S., those that the Fake News Media never mention," Trump said in a statement posted to O'Reilly's website.
Trump has a long history of contention and adversity with Obama. In 2016, Trump called the Democrat "the most ignorant president in our history."
"I think President Obama has been the most ignorant president in our history," Trump said. "His views of the world, as he says, 'don't jive,' and the world is a mess ... He has been a disaster as a president."
"He will go down as one of the worst presidents in the history of our country, he is a mess," Trump added.
Obama has jabbed at Trump as well. In 2020, he mocked Trump, saying that he was jealous of the media coverage the coronavirus was receiving.

"He's jealous of COVID's media coverage. If he had been focused on COVID from the beginning, cases wouldn't be reaching new record highs across the country this week," Obama said while on the campaign trail for Joe Biden in Florida.
