Obama Issues Scathing Critique Of Trump, 'Politics Of Fear'

The Latest Obama ‘Our democracy depends’ on people voting

Former President Barack Obama issued a scorching critique of his successor Friday, blasting President Donald Trump's policies and his pattern of pressuring the Justice Department.

"Just a glance at recent headlines should tell you this moment really is different".

His appearance - one day after a strongly worded critique of Trump at University of IL at Urbana-Champaign - touched on themes of retirement security, climate change and education. "I have to say this to President Obama - if the Dems got in with their agenda in November of nearly 2 years ago, instead of having 4.2 [GDP] up, i believe honestly we'd have 4.2 down.This is not called a recovery, this is called a rocket ship".

"In two months we have the chance to restore some semblance of sanity to our politics", Obama said. I don't mean to pretend I'm channeling Lincoln now, but that's not what he had in mind, I don't think when he formed the Republican Party.

The November elections have been seen as a referendum on Trump, who has fulfilled campaign promises to cut taxes and regulations but who faces a widening special counsel probe of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and growing questions about his fitness for office, even by some within his administration. "That's not how our democracy's supposed to work", Obama said.

According to Obama, voting in new surprise candidates automatically brought hope and change which would transform livelihoods of every citizen thus those who never voted for anyone were an impediment to change and development. The number of Hispanics, blacks and Asians combined has outnumbered whites in the state since 1998.

Demographics have changed with an influx of Latinos, Asians and other immigrants.

In Orange County, Republicans held a 13-point edge in voter registration 10 years ago but that has shrunk to 3 points while independents, who tend to vote like Democrats in California, have climbed to 25 percent.

He slammed congressional Republicans for not acting as a check on the Executive Branch. "How hard can that be, to say that Nazis are bad?" They also said he is better positioned than nearly anyone else in the party to raise huge amounts of campaign cash. "Better is always worth fighting for", Obama said. "I found that he's very, very good for sleeping". "It reminds the Republicans why these midterms are important".

Bongino also said Americans are sick and exhausted of being talked down to by "elitist goofballs" like Obama, and slammed a quote from former White House staffer Ben Rhodes' book, "The World As It Is", in which Obama apparently said he wondered if America was ready for his presidency.

During his appearance, he called the ex-president's comments "disgraceful", as Fox News Insider reported.

Obama is also planning campaign trips to Pennsylvania in September, an Obama official said, as well as a NY fundraiser for the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, an organization led by former Attorney General Eric Holder, Obama's longtime friend.
