  • WATCH LIVE: Obama Kicks Off Midterm Push In Illinois

"He is just capitalizing on resentment that politicians have been fanning for years", the former President said. At a fundraiser in North Dakota, the USA president told a crowd of supporters: "I watched it, but I fell asleep".

Responding to Obama's address, Trump said he had fallen asleep listening to it.

On Friday, Obama made his first appearance in the midterm election battle, in a speech at the University of IL at Urbana-Champaign, where he accepted an ethics in government award. "We have the chance to flip the House of Representatives and make sure that there are real checks and balances in Washington".

Obama's comments came during a speech at the University of IL at Urbana-Champaign, where he accepted an ethics in government award. But "it did not start with Donald Trump", he said.

"Appealing to tribe, appealing to fear, pitting one group against another, telling people that order and security will be restored if it weren't for those who don't look like us or don't sound like us or don't pray like we do.that's an old playbook", Obama said.

"Truly the American other folks in 2016 rejected the protection and course of Barack Obama after they elected President Donald Trump", he acknowledged.Pence used to be moreover pressed on Trump's push for the Justice Department to examine the id of an anonymous Recent York Times op-ed penned by a senior administration agreeable who claimed officers are working to undermine Trump.

But instead of showing up to vote for the Democrat, they hoped their folks would show up to make sure Obama's party was not put back in the majorities in Congress. And who say to themselves.




Former U.S. President Barack Obama on Saturday told attendees at a Democratic rally that the United States government "is a government for everybody". But nothing will get done if this generation doesn't vote, he added.

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 per cent. "That unfortunately has been a spiral that we have been on for the last couple of years".

Obama told a large and enthusiastic crowd in Anaheim, California - in the traditionally Republican stronghold of Orange County - that the nation was "in a challenging moment".

Trump fired back by pointing at the country's 4.2 percent growth rate for the second quarter - accusing Obama of "trying to take credit for this incredible thing that's happening".

"Don't tell me your vote doesn't matter", he said in IL. After a particularly brutal loss in the 2010 midterms - 63 House seats and six Senate seats - Obama said the party had received a "shellacking". "There is actually only one check on bad policy and abuses of power, and that's you and your vote", Obama said.

Obama is expected to deliver the same message in Cleveland on Thursday where he will campaign for Richard Cordray, the Democratic nominee for OH governor, and other Democrats.
