Barack Obama has taken a swipe at Hispanic voters who chose Donald Trump, accusing them of ignoring the US president’s “racist” comments.

The ex-US president argued some overlooked Mr Trump’s rhetoric because they supported his anti-abortion stance.

Mr Obama also criticised undocumented migrants being held in “cages”, a practice that began in his presidency.

Exit polls show Mr Trump won a larger percentage of Hispanics than in 2016.

The Republican president garnered about 32% of the demographic in 2020, up from 28% four years ago.
