Oct 18, 2016 – Obama Says Donald Trump Unfit As US President Over Planned Visit To Putin

President Obama has told Donald Trump to “stop whining” following his claims that next month’s election will be rigged.

He said Mr Trump’s attempt to discredit a poll before it has even taken place is “unprecedented” for a US presidential candidate.
Also “unprecedented”, said Mr Obama, was the Republican candidate’s “flattery” of Russia’s president.

Mr Trump is facing sinking poll numbers and accusations of sexual assault.
The businessman-turned-politician has claimed the 8 November election will be “absolutely rigged” for Hillary Clinton.

But in a White House Rose Garden news conference alongside visiting Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi on Tuesday, Mr 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,” Mr Obama said.
“By the way,” he added, “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.”

Mr Obama also addressed the Republican candidate’s admiring remarks about Vladimir Putin.

“Mr Trump’s continued flattery of Mr Putin and the degree to which he appears to model much of his policies and approach to politics on Mr Putin is unprecedented,” he said.
His broadside comes a day after Mr Trump said he would consider visiting Russia before taking office, if elected.

He told a talk-radio host: “If I win on November 8, I could see myself meeting with Putin and meeting with Russia prior to the start of the administration.”

  1. As much as i dont like Trump, i truly believe he’s being demonized in the media. Yes, the election is being rigged before election begins. The real reason for this is bcus of his anti-israel rhetoric and some pro-russia sentiment, little it may be.

  2. POTUS has already become part of the establishment, calling truth conspiracy and lies to be true… In my own opinion, we should not expect much difference regardless of whoever win their next election except Hillary can start the WW3 earlier than Trump.

    America is part of the World where there is no permanent enemy in politics,rather permanent interest. Their agenda for the next 20yrs or beyond is already down and this their drama is called selection and not election… they both love their country and will do anything to protect it.

    I still wish Nigeria will be learning something, to put our country first before any other thing, to forget about the drama and rhetoric that comes with campaign,then embrace each other for the betterment of our country.
