"Because of our failed leaders, including from the campaigner in chief Obama — this guys does nothing but campaign. You know I said the other day, I said, 'Let him work on bringing our jobs back from Mexico, who stole our jobs. Let him work on building up our very depleted, you know it better than anybody, our depleted military,'" Trump said during a rally in Selma, N.C.

"Instead, he is campaigning with somebody who is under the FBI investigation."
 
Trump argued that the country's current leaders are inept. 
 
"We are led by stupid people, OK? We're led by stupid people, and one of them is campaigning just too much," he said.
 
Trump's comments come just five days before Election Day, and he and Clinton are campaigning hard in key battleground states like North Carolina, where they held overlapping events Thursday evening.
