Watch President Obama Basically Compare Trump to a Whining Toddler
President Obama has not been holding back when it comes to Donald Trump, and his latest press conference was no different. While speaking in the Rose Garden to welcome Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, Obama discussed Trump's recent claims that the election is rigged. Obama's advice to the GOP nominee was blunt — he said Trump should "stop whining and go try to make his case to get votes."
Obama elaborated on why Trump's assertion that the election is rigged threatens the basis of democracy. "We have a vigorous, sometimes bitter political contest, and when it's done, historically, regardless of party, the person who loses the election congratulates the winner, reaffirms our democracy, and we move forward," Obama said.
If Trump wins more votes than Clinton, Obama added that he will look past their differences for the sake of a peaceful transfer of power. "That's how democracy survives," he stated. Speaking specifically on Trump's preemptive attempt to "discredit the elections" before anyone has even voted, Obama added, "It's unprecedented. It happens to be based on no facts."
