WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama delivered a sharp rebuke Tuesday to Donald Trump for his unsupported claims that the presidential election is being rigged against him.

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

During a news conference with the visiting Italian prime minister, Obama said there is simply no evidence of widespread fraud. He added that it says a lot about Trump that he’s complaining even before the election takes place.
