President Obama showed America what a real president acts like while taking apart Donald Trump’s whining about election rigging.
The President said:
But the larger point I want to emphasize is, there is no serious person out there that would suggest somehow that you could even rig America’s elections in part because they’re so decentralized and the numbers of votes involved. There’s no evidence that that has happened in the past or instances where that will happen this time.
And so, I’d advise Mr. Trump to stop whining and go make his case to go get votes.
And if he got the most votes, it would be my expectation of Hillary Clinton to offer a gracious concession speech and pledge to work with him in order to make sure that the American people benefit from an effective government.
Obama showed America how a real president and leader behaves. A true leader doesn’t push bogus conspiracy theories to give himself an excuse when he is losing. A President doesn’t blame others for his/her own failures. If Trump’s first instinct is to claim that the election is rigged when he is losing, how is going to react to bad economic numbers or bad news in general?
Part of any president’s job is to defend ensure, protect, and defend the integrity of the nation’s democratic processes. With his Rose Garden comments, Obama not only protected the nation’s elections. He also demonstrated how a responsible leader behaves when confronted with a fundamental threat to our elections.
Obama put Trump to shame by standing on the biggest stage in the world and reminding voters of Trump is a presidential pretender.
