Obama: rejects efforts to encourage violence on U.S. campaign trail


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama said on Tuesday he was dismayed by what was happening on the U.S. presidential campaign trail and, in a reference to Republican front-runner Donald Trump, said he rejected any measures to encourage violence.

"I reject any effort to spread fear or encourage violence ... or to turn Americans against one another," Obama said during an event on Capitol Hill.
