Obama says Trump is 'the symptom, not the cause' of division

"I'm here today because this is one of those pivotal moments when every one of us as citizens of the United States need to determine just who it is that we are", Obama said. And in a healthy democracy, it doesn't work.

He condemned moments of Trump's presidency and the White House.

"We thought it was important to find a setting where he can find a cogent, rational argument outside of the more chaotic campaign appearances that come this fall", the adviser said. His work has also appeared in Salon, Raw Story, Truthdig, National Memo, Philadelphia Weekly, Democratic Underground, L.A. Weekly, MintPress News and many other publications. "We are supposed to stand up to discrimination, and we sure are as heck are supposed to stand up clearly and unequivocally to Nazi sympathizers". How hard can it be to say that Nazis are bad?' These people aren't elected.

While Obama has in the past blasted Trump and his policies, this was the first speech in which he used his successor's name. He asked what had happened to the Republican Party. We are supposed to stand up to bullies not follow them.

President Barack Obama has extensively criticized Trump, including his relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin and his attempts to corruptly influence the Justice Department, while defending his own legacy.

"When We All Vote" is housed in an organization called Civic Advisors, which also handles several post presidential programs Michelle Obama is involved in.

In his remarks, Obama highlighted the anonymous op-ed in The New York Times this week, published by a Senior Administration Official.

Obama also condemned the politics of "fear and resentment" during his speech, which led him to become the top trending item on Twitter Friday morning.

Next week he'll be in OH to campaign for Richard Cordray and other Democrats. Aides close to Obama have said he's bit his lip, wanting to avoid an ugly tit-for-tat and to stay above the fray.

Mr Trump, meanwhile, claims he fell asleep watching Mr Obama's speech.

Republicans shrugged off Mr Obama's criticism.

If Democrats won control of one or both chambers in Congress in November, they would be able not just to stymie Trump's agenda but to launch investigations into the Trump administration.

"If it (impeachment) does happen, it's your fault, because you didn't go out to vote". Obama's point is that this, while less abnormal than Trump's deranged-emperor routine, is not normal, either. The South Carolina senator tweeted, "The more President @BarackObama speaks about the "good ole years" of his presidency, the more likely President @realDonaldTrump is to get re-elected". He will spend this Saturday in California stumping for seven congressional candidates at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee event and will head to OH next week to campaign for gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray.
