Morales described the American president as a "criminal" who willingly violates international law.
"The US cannot be allowed to continue with its policy of intimidation and blockading presidential flights," Morales stated.
He added that Bolivia intends to prepare legal action against the US president and file the lawsuit before the international court.
Morales has called an emergency meeting of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) over the US action, which has been slammed by Venezuela as "an act of intimidation by north American imperialism."
The Bolivian president has implied that the CELAC members recall their ambassadors from Washington in an effort to convey a strong message to the Obama administration.
The anti-US measures called by the Bolivian president comes just months after Morales's presidential aircraft was denied entry into several Western European countries, forcing it to land in Austria.
The May 2013 incident was widely described as a US-led effort out of a false suspicion that American spy agency whistleblower Edward Snowden may be onboard the aircraft.
At the time Bolivia was among a few countries that offered political asylum to Snowden, a US fugitive and former contract employee of American spy agencies, CIA and NSA, who leaked documents showing massive US electronic spying operations around the globe, including its European and Latin American allies.
