At the height of the election, then-candidate Donald Trump warned Americans of the voter fraud troubles happening at the voting booths.
Instead of addressing the concerns of election meddling by outside sources, Obama told Trump that he needed to “stop whining” because his claims were “unprecedented” and false.
Speaking at a press conference at the White House in October of 2016, Obama said, “I’d invite Mr. Trump to stop whining and go try to make his case to get votes.”
“I have never seen, in my lifetime or in modern political history, any presidential candidate trying to discredit the elections and the election process before votes have even taken place. It’s unprecedented. It happens to be based on no facts,” he added.
