Trump ignores Obama's advice to 'stop whining'

Barack Obama certainly knows how to keep it real. Now he’s criticised Donald Trump for sowing suspicion about the integrity of the US presidential election, telling him to “stop whining” and focus on winning votes. Ouch.

However, this hasn’t seemed to have deterred Trump, who continues to proclaim that the voter fraud seen in the US is “unprecedented” in modern politics.

The rhetoric is not based on any evidence, Obama said, but is simply aimed at discrediting the election before the first votes are counted.

“You start whining before the game’s even over?” Obama said at a press conference. “Then you don’t have what it takes to be in this job.” Fighting talk from the incumbent.
