Amid the deeply polarizing times that define President Obama’s tenure, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said Sunday he will be a “great unifier” for the country.

Appearing via phone on CNN’s “State of the Union,” the real estate tycoon commented on Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton’s appearance before the House Select Committee on Benghazi, pointing to how “partisan” the proceedings were and the “hatred” on display between the parties.

“It was very partisan, and it looked quite partisan,” Trump said. “The level of hatred between Republicans and Democrats was unbelievable. You’ve never seen anything like this.”

He then told host Jake Tapper he’ll be a “great unifier” as president.

“I’m going to unify,” the candidate said. “This country is totally divided.”

And Trump understands the root cause of the divide.

“Barack Obama has divided this country unbelievably, and it’s all hatred,” he said. “What can I tell you, I’ve never seen anything like it. I’m going to unify the country.”

Trump fell back on something he has taken has taken heat for on the campaign trail, his past support of Democrats.

“One of the big knocks on me was that over the years I’ve gotten along with Democrats and I’ve gotten along with Republicans, and I said that’s a good thing,” he said. “As a businessman, I had an obligation to do that, to myself, to my family, to my company, to my employees.”

I get along with everybody,” Trump added. “I will be a great unifier for our country.”
