President Obama RIPS Donald Trump: Of Course The Election’s Not Going To Be Rigged’

President Obama says Donald Trump’s claim that US elections will be rigged is ‘ridiculous’. President Barack Obama has a suggestion for Donald Trump and his claims that the election will be rigged: “Go out there and win the election.” Obama said Trump’s recent suggestions that this fall’s election won’t be completely fair are “ridiculous.” He added, “Of course the election will not be rigged. What does that even mean?” President Obama on Thursday laughed off Donald Trump’s claim that the November election could be “rigged” against him. Obama appeared befuddled by Trump’s claim when asked about it during a press conference at the Pentagon. “I don’t even really know where to start on answering this question,” he said. “Of course the elections will not be rigged. What does that mean?” Obama pointed out that elections are run by state and local authorities — which are run by Republicans and Democrats alike — and not the federal government. “If Mr Trump is suggesting a conspiracy theory that is being propagated across the country … that’s ridiculous,” the president said. b“It doesn’t make sense and I don’t think anyone would take that seriously.” Obama drew a sports analogy to Trump’s eyebrow-raising claim, saying that he has “never heard someone complaining about getting cheated before the game is over.” “My suggestion would be, go out there and try to win the election,” Obama said. “If Mr. Trump is up 10-15 points on Election Day and ends up losing, maybe he can raise some questions. That doesn’t seem to be the case at the moment.”Obama noted that the federal government does not run the presidential election. Rather, that’s a function carried out by states and local governments. But he said the federal government will “take seriously our responsibility” to monitor and preserve the integrity of the election and Americans’ voting rights. President Barack Obama says that Donald Trump’s suggestion that the U.S. election process is rigged is “ridiculous.” The president addressed Trump’s comments Thursday at a White House briefing. Trump said this week that elections are rigged after several states repealed laws that restricted the types of voter IDs that would be widely accepted at polling stations.President Obama RIPS Trump “Of Course The Elections Not Going To Be Rigged”
