Stop Whining, Obama Tells Donald Trump

US President Barack Obama has told Donald Trump to “stop whining” as he rejected his claim that next month’s White House election will be rigged.
Obama said Trump’s attempt to discredit a poll before it has even taken place was “unprecedented” for a US presidential candidate.
Trump is facing sinking poll numbers and accusations of sexual assault. The businessman-turned-politician has claimed the November 8 election will be “absolutely rigged” for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, BBC reported.
But in a White House Rose Garden news conference on Tuesday alongside visiting Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, Obama said his assertions were “based on no facts”.
“I’d advise Mr Trump to stop whining and try to make his case to get votes,” Obama said.
“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.”
The Republican candidate has seen his poll numbers slide since their first battle of wits with Hillary Clinton, followed by the emergence of a 2005 sex boast tape that he was forced to address in the second debate.
Trump denied any impropriety, but a number of women have come forward with sexual assault allegations against him.
Clinton headed into Wednesday’s debate with a seven-point lead over her Republican rival, according to a Monmouth University poll. She leads Trump 47% to 40%, while 7% of likely voters say they will support the Libertarian Party candidate, Gary Johnson.
