GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — President Barack Obama is harshly criticizing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump during a rally in North Carolina, saying he has proven over and over again that he is unfit to lead the country.

Obama says in his races with Republicans John McCain and Mitt Romney, they disagreed on policy, but he never thought they weren’t honorable.

Obama is pitching the current presidential contest as different. He says Trump “doesn’t have the temperament, or the judgment, or the knowledge, or apparently, the desire to obtain the knowledge, or the basic honesty that a president needs to have.

Plus, Obama says, “And that was true even before we heard about his attitude toward women.”

Obama says the closer the nation gets to Election Day, the clearer the choice becomes.
