Former President Barack Obama told TV host Jimmy Kimmel that he believes the military may need to remove President Trump from the White House.

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Kimmel asked Obama if the White House has any secret spots where "someone could hide" if they did not want to leave.

"Well, I think we can always send the Navy SEALS in there to dig him out," Obama responded, insinuating that Trump may need to be physically removed from the White House.

Kimmel also asked Obama if it would be strange to call Biden "Mr. President."

"No. I've already called him Mr. President Elect," Obama said.

Kimmel asked the former president if the title had been awarded prematurely in light of pending litigation from the Trump campaign in key swing states, prompting Obama to say that he thought he "was right on time."

Obama also spoke about former President George W. Bush, praising him for being a "patriot."

"When I came in, we were in the middle of a big crisis, the financial crisis. George W. Bush, he and I had obviously big policy differences, but he's a good man, he's a patriot," said Obama. "And he ordered everybody on his team to work seamlessly with us on the transition. Could not have been more gracious. Could not have been more helpful. And that actually helped us be able to get a head start on trying to stem what could have been a great depression instead of a great recession."
