Barack Obama announces premature election victory after reporting Donald Trump as a 'two-bit dictator'


Former President Barack Obama has criticized his successor, Donald Trump, for casting doubt on the outcome of the upcoming election, likening him to a "two-bit dictator."


Addressing a campaign rally in Miami on behalf of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, Mr. Obama said the Republican President suggested he could declare victory "before all votes are counted."


"That's what a two-bit dictator does," Mr. Obama said. "If you believe in democracy, you want every vote counted."


Mr. Obama said that if a Democrat is acting like Mr. Trump, "I can't support him."


The former president said that unlike Mr. Trump, "with Joe and Kamala you don't have to think about them every day."


"You don't have to discuss the crazy tweets the president sent this morning," Mr. Obama said.


"It will not be so tiring. You will know in your life that the president is doing his job instead of proposing to bleach us."


On Sunday, news site Axis reported that Mr. Trump would declare victory on Tuesday night if he appeared to be ahead.


Mr. Trump denied the report, but said counting ballots after election day was a "terrible thing".


Officials have warned that due to the expected increase in postal ballots, voters will have to wait a few days or weeks for the election results.


The last time it was not clear within a few hours was in 2000, when the winner was not confirmed’ until a month later the Supreme Court ruled.


Different states have different rules on how and when to count postal ballots and in some states, it will take weeks to get complete results.
