Barack Obama Rebukes Donald Trump Publicly For First Time

Students waiting

"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 up, i believe honestly we'd have 4.2 down", Trump said, referring to the U.S.'s economic growth.

"None of this is conservative", Obama said. "I found that he's very, very good for sleeping", he said. The speech kicked off Obama's campaigning on behalf of fellow Democrats ahead of the midterm elections.

Just one day after publicly calling out President Trump, former President Barack Obama gave a speech in California warning voters that if they did not vote in the midterm elections, it could all go downhill from here. "And to have President Obama come out and tout his policies that resulted in less than 2 percent growth-which saw tax increases, Obamacare regulation, and a doubling of the national debt-I think was it was very disappointing".

Obama also said the biggest threat to USA democracy is not one individual, nor is it wealthy political supporters. "He is a symptom, not the cause", he said. "He is just capitalizing on resentment that politicians have been fanning for years", he said. In the other Orange County race, Gil Cisneros, a Democratic philanthropist and Navy veteran, is vying for an open seat created by retiring Republican Ed Royce.

In his IL speech on Friday, Obama will revisit themes he has expounded on in the past, including that "America is at its best when our democracy is inclusive and our citizens are engaged", and that "this moment in our country is too perilous for Democratic voters to sit out", said spokeswoman Katie Hill.

Obama's speech Saturday took a softer approach than his event on Friday, with the former president avoided taking direct jabs at Trump.

The only thing they have to do, Obama said, is "show up".

Following a fiery appearance in his home state of IL, former President Barack Obama brought a softer tone Saturday to Orange County, California - a traditional GOP stronghold.

Obama is expected to deliver a similar message in Cleveland on Thursday, when he campaigns on behalf of Richard Cordray, the Democratic nominee for OH governor, and other Democrats.

"If you thought that elections don't matter, I hope these last two years have corrected that impression", he said.

But he said he made a decision to speak now because "the stakes really are higher" than before.

The county's economy has evolved to more services and high-tech jobs that attract white-collar workers who are inclined to vote Democratic.

"It should not be Democratic or Republican". "Or to explicitly call on the attorney general to protect members of our own party from prosecution because an election happens to be coming up. Saying that Nazis are bad?"

"We're going to put on our marching shoes, we're going to start knocking on some doors, we're going to start making some calls", he said to cheers.
