Stop“Whining” Before The Game Is Over: Obama
Washington: President Barrack Obama said on Tuesday that the Republican nominee Donald Trump should stop whining before the game is over and start making his case to win the election. Obama held a press conference with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi at the White House.
When a reporter asked if he was worried about voter fraud, Obama said any expert regardless of any party who examines the elections in a serious way would tell that instances of voter fraud are not to be found.
Earlier, Trump has made remarks that the election was rigged and asked his supporters to monitor certain areas to stop rigging. Responding to Trump’s voter fraud comments, Obama said the remarks were both irresponsible and don’t show the leadership quality and toughness of a to-be-president.
If whenever things are going badly and you start blaming somebody, then you are not fit for this (president) job, Obama said.
Talking about Trump’s remark that the election was rigged, Obama said that in his lifetime he hasn’t seen any presidential candidate trying to discredit the election and the election process before voting had even taken place.There is something more important than the individual campaign and that is the integrity and trust in our institutions, he said.
“Democracy is run by consent, not by force,” he said.
With all the allegations of misbehaving with women and women coming out to accuse him of sexual harassment, Trump has responded by criticizing the Democratic Party and the media of organizing a planned allegation against him. Even in an interview with Anderson Cooper, CNN anchor, Melania Trump, wife of Donald Trump,said the same thing.
Reacting to these allegations, Trump has gone a step further and criticized the election process. He said that the election is rigged against him.
Later Trump tweeted: “The election is absolutely being rigged by the dishonest and distorted media pushing crooked Hillary – but also at many polling places – SAD”.
