US President, Barack Obama, expressed that Donald Trump should “stop whining” and denies the allegations that next month’s White House election will be fixed.
Obama said Donald Trump’s action to discredit a poll before it has even taken place was “unprecedented” for a presidential candidate.
Donald Trump is facing sinking poll numbers due to the accusations of sexual assault. The US presidential candidate has claimed the 8 November election will be “absolutely rigged” for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
However, Obama said during a news conference alongside visiting Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, that Trump’s assumptions are “based on no facts”.[perfectpullquote align=”full” cite=”Obama” link=”” color=”#ED2525″ class=”” size=”16″] “I’d advise Mr. Trump to stop whining and try to make his case to get votes.” “By the way, [it] doesn’t really show the kind of leadership and toughness that you want out of a president if you start whining before the game’s even over. If whenever things are going badly for you and you lose you start blaming somebody else, then you don’t have what it takes to be in this job.” [/perfectpullquote]
Mr. Obama also addressed the Republican candidate’s admiring remarks about Vladimir Putin.

This is after Mr. Trump said he would consider visiting Russia before taking office if elected.[perfectpullquote align=”full” cite=”Trump” link=”” color=”#ED2525″ class=”” size=”16″]”If I win on November 8, I could see myself meeting with Putin and meeting with Russia prior to the start of the administration.”[/perfectpullquote]
