Washington - President Barack Obama says Donald Trump's positions aren't different from those of the other Republican presidential candidates - he's just more provocative in talking about them.

Obama weighed in on the 2016 presidential campaign during a news conference with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Obama says Trump's positions on immigration and other issues aren't that different from those of Texas Senator Ted Cruz or Florida Senator Marco Rubio.
