Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump elaborated on his claim that the election could be "rigged" in an appearance on the Mike Gallagher radio program on Tuesday.
Also on Tuesday, President Obama warned Trump to "stop whining" about the election being rigged. "You start whining before the game is even over? If whenever things are going badly for you and you lose, you start blaming somebody else, you don't have what it takes to be in this job," the president said.
Trump blasted House Speaker Paul Ryan, who issued a memo saying the election was not and could not be "rigged" this week. "Why doesn't he walk over to Philadelphia, St. Louis, Chicago, some of these cities?" Trump wondered about Ryan. "Is he naïve? Because that is naiveté. Or maybe something worse than that."
DONALD TRUMP: When I talk about the election being 'rigged,' it was just reported there are almost two million dead people who are registered to vote. And Paul Ryan gets up and issues a memo that he disagrees the election is rigged. Why doesn't he walk over to Philadelphia, St. Louis, Chicago, some of these cities? And how could he say the election is--
Look nothing is perfect, but this process is unbelievable. And it is certainly rigged with the press. So why would he issue a memo that-- Is he naïve? Because that is naiveté. Or maybe something worse than that. I don't know what it is. But you go to Philadelphia where Romney got zero votes, where McCain got zero votes. So they're very disappointing.
