WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama is delivering a sharp rebuke to Donald Trump for his unsupported claims that the presidential election is being rigged against him.

Obama says the Republican nominee needs to “stop whining” and go make his case to voters.

Obama spoke during a news conference Tuesday with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi at the White House.

The president said there is simply no evidence of widespread fraud, and it says a lot about Trump that he’s complaining even before the election takes place.

Obama said that if a candidate starts whining before the game is over, “then you don’t have what it takes to be in this job.”

He is stressing that elections are run by state and local officials who come from both major political parties.
