    The US president claimed that his son could have created a better website than the Obamacare one - and for a much cheaper price.

    During his recent appearance at a rally in Las Vegas, US President Donald Trump apparently managed to rile up his audience both offline and online with a fresh jab at the legacy of his predecessor, Barack Obama.

    As he discussed the issue of healthcare at the event, Trump claimed that his 13-year old son Barron, whom he described as a computer genius, could make a better website than Obamacare, which, the president claimed, cost $5 billion instead of the $5 million as it was originally intended.

    ​"He would’ve done it for nothing, and it would’ve been better than what they have", the president said as the audience cheered.

    Trump’s statement elicited a positive reaction from quite a few social media users who appeared to concur with his assessment of the Obamacare site.

    Some, however, argued that perhaps mentioning Barron was not a very good idea, considering how First Lady Melania Trump previously insisted that her son "should be kept out of politics".
