During a Tuesday presser at the White House held to commemorate Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi‘s visit, President Obama unleashed on Donald Trump‘s outlandish rigged election accusation by telling the GOP candidate to “stop whining.”
“He started whining before the game’s even over,” Obama said.
The president continued falsifying Trump’s claims, which have yet to be proven in terms of widespread voter fraud.
“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,” Obama said. “It’s unprecedented.”
Trump’s rigged election claims reached a fever pitch this week after two less than convincing debate performances and plummeting poll numbers in key swing states.
Trump tweeted out the following on Sunday afternoon, setting off a firestorm:
And during a Monday night rally in Wisconsin, Trump brought forth the claim again: “Remember, we are competing in a rigged election. They even want to try and rig the election at the polling booths, where so many cities are corrupt and voter fraud is all too common,” he said.
President Obama offered Trump a game plan from the Rose Garden on Tuesday, less than 30 days before the general election: “I’d invite Mr. Trump to stop whining, and go try to make his case to get votes.”
