COLUMBUS, Ohio -- President Barack Obama returned to Ohio a week before Election Day, campaigning for Hillary Clinton.

Obama told working-class voters not to be "bamboozled" by Donald Trump.

Obama tore into the Republican businessman's working-class credentials, saying Trump has "shown no regard for working people." Repeating his disbelief: "C'mon, this guy?"

The Democrat said Trump "wouldn't let you into one of his hotels unless you were cleaning the room."

Obama spoke at Capital University near Columbus, Ohio, a state he won twice by winning just enough working-class voters, while pumping up turnout among African Americans.

Polls show Clinton appears to be struggling in Ohio, thanks in part to Trump's strength among working-class, white voters.

This was the second time Obama visited the Columbus area in less than a month.

The president is making an all-out push for Clinton, campaigning on her behalf nearly every day remaining until the election. Tonight, he is expected to encourage people to vote early.

The event comes the day after Clinton held a rally in Cincinnati and the day before Sen. Bernie Sanders is due to campaign for Clinton in Cincinnati.
