George Zimmerman says President Obama is to blame for ramping up racial tensions during the Trayvon Martin case.

In an interview with the Orlando Sentinel, Zimmerman criticized Obama for saying if he had a son, he'd look like Martin.

Zimmerman called the comment incendiary and also blasted the president for directing the U.S. Justice Department to pursue what he called a baseless prosecution.

The Sentinel reported that Zimmerman referred to the president as Barack Hussein Obama.

A Florida jury acquitted Zimmerman of manslaughter in the 2013 death of Martin.
