Obama tells Trump to ‘stop whining’ about ‘rigged’ election system
Jumping into the presidential campaign like no other two-term incumbent, President Obama warned Donald Trumpon Tuesday to “stop whining” about a rigged election system, calling the Republican nominee’s claims “unprecedented” and false.
Speaking at a press conference in the dignified confines of the White House Rose Garden with the prime minister of Italy by his side, Mr. Obama couldn’t resist criticizing Mr. Trump in harsh terms, even after professing to be “subdued” because he wasn’t at a campaign rally.
“I’d invite Mr. Trump to stop whining and go try to make his case to get votes,” Mr. Obama said. “I have never seen, in my lifetime or in modern political history, any presidential candidate trying to discredit the elections and the election process before votes have even taken place. It’s unprecedented. It happens to be based on no facts.”
