Los angeles : US President Barack Obama on Tuesday challenged male voters in Ohio to examine whether it is sexism that is keeping them away from voting for Hillary Clinton.

Addressing a rally,, Obama said, "To the guys out there, I want to be honest. You know there’s a reason why we haven’t had a woman president before and I think sometimes we’re trying to get over the hump. I want every man out there who’s voting to kind of look inside yourself and ask yourself. If you’re having problems with this stuff, how much of it is you know that we’re not just used to it?"

"When a guy's ambitious and out in the public arena and working hard well that’s OK, but when a woman suddenly does it, suddenly you’re all like – well why’s she doing that? I want you to think about it because she is so much better qualified than the other guy. She has conducted herself so much better in public life than the other guy...This notion that somehow it's hard to choose, it shouldn't be."

He even asked the working class voters to not be duped by the Republican nominee and said, “The notion that this guy is your champion, the notion that this guy is going to fight for working people when his entire life he did not have time for anybody who wasn't rich or a celebrity. Who wouldn't let you into one of his hotels unless you were cleaning the room. Wouldn't let you onto one of his golf courses unless you were mowing the fairway. Come on. This guy is going to be you champion?"

He even argued that Trump is unfit for the White House and that his presidency would highlight the real estate mogul's negative traits.

Obama made no mention of the FBI's review of Clinton emails but admitted that former Secretary of State made some mistakes in her career earlier.

To a question he responded, "Has she made mistakes? Of course, so have I. There’s nobody in the public arena over the course of 30 years that doesn’t make some. But she is a fundamentally good and decent person who knows what she’s doing and will be an outstanding president."
