President Obama laughed at suggestions by Republican candidate Donald Trump warning of the possibility of voter fraud in the upcoming 2016 presidential election.

The president responded to the allegations during a press conference Thursday evening, stating it is merely a “conspiracy theory” being spread by Trump and that the election “will not be rigged.”

“I don’t even really know where to start on answering this question,” Obama told a reporter. “Of course the elections will not be rigged. What does that mean?”

Obama argued the rumor was preposterous because “in places like Texas” Democrats don’t control the voting booths.

“If Mr. Trump is suggesting that there is a conspiracy theory that is being propagated across the country – including in places like Texas, where typically it’s not Democrats who are in charge of voting booths – that’s ridiculous, that doesn’t make any sense, and I don’t think anyone should take that seriously.”

Earlier this week Trump cast doubt on the electoral process at a rally and in interviews stating he felt the general election could be rigged.

“I’m afraid the election is going to be rigged, I have to be honest,” Trump said at an Ohio rally on Tuesday.
