US President Barack Obama has rebuked Republican rival Mitt Romney, saying that anyone seeking to be president needs to work for all Americans.

Mr Obama told chat show host David Letterman said Mr Romney was wrong to describe 47% of Americans as "victims".

Earlier, Mr Romney defended his remarks after secretly filmed video of a speech to donors became public.

He told Fox News he knew those "dependent on government" would not vote for him in November's election.
