Obama Calls Trump the Product of a Republican Party Gone Mad

Former President Barack Obama talks with Caffe Paradiso owner Young Jeon during a surprise campaign stop with Illinois Democratic gubernatorial candidate J.B. Pritzker and his running mate state Rep. Juliana Stratton Friday Sept. 7 2018 after speaking

The remarks served as Obama's first steps into the political fray ahead of the fall campaign.

He later added: "This is not normal". Obama was in IL to accept an award for ethics in government from the University of IL. The award is named for Senator Paul H. Thomas, who represented IL from 1949 to 1967, according to the school's website.

Mr Pence said it was "very disappointing" to see Obama "become so political", when other former presidents have shied away from being too involved once out of office.

While voters in California stepped it up for Clinton in the 2016 presidential elections, giving her a 4 million vote edge over Trump, Orange County has remained steadfastly Republican.

"It shouldn't be Democratic or Republican to say that we don't threaten the freedom of the press because they say things or publish stories we don't like". His post-presidency is the next chapter in the cause of his life - bringing people together to change the world for the better.

Republican National Committee spokesman Michael Ahrens said in a statement that more Obama wouldn't help the Democrats.

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.

"The claim that everything will turn out OK because there are people inside the White House who secretly aren't following the president's orders, that is not a check", he said.

North Korean posters no longer display anti-American slogans
What hardware he rolls out - and how much of it - could signal his level of commitment to talks or intent to tweak USA allies. North Korea said Friday the request to circulate the document "shows full determination" to keep advancing North-South ties.

The "good news" Obama said is "in two months we have a chance to restore some sanity in our politics".

Accordingly, Obama also said the "stakes really are higher" in terms of this years midterms.

"It shouldn't be Democratic or Republican to say we don't target certain groups of people based on what they look like or how they pray. I found he's very good, very good for sleeping", the president said. "I'm sorry, I watched it, but I fell asleep", the president said.

"I will tell you what Barack Obama does that hurts Donald Trump more than the most cutting insult, and that is he takes the cameras off of Trump and takes the attention off Trump", Wilson said. "You need to vote because our democracy depends on it".

Next week, Obama plans to campaign in Ohio for Richard Cordray, the Democratic nominee for governor, and Ohio Democrats. "Saying that Nazis are bad?"

Mr Obama said the greatest threat to U.S. democracy comes not from any single individual or from any group of billionaires seeking to dominate the nation's politics.

Then president Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama pose with then president-elect Donald Trump and his wife Melania at the White House in Washington, Friday, Jan. 20, 2017.
