Rhetoric during the 2016 US election campaign has been "uglier" than in years past, Barack Obama has said.
Speaking at a Washington gala for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, the US president said talk around hot-button social and political issues such as immigration and gun reform has "cut deeper", and has been been "a little more personal, meaner".
He said: "Folks are betting that if they can drive us far enough apart and if they can put down enough of us because of where we come from or what we look like, or what religion we practice, then that may pay of at the polls."
