Barack Obama encourages people to vote: "This is not Coachella"

Obama calls midterm votes urgent in rebuke of Trump 'Our democracy depends on it'

Obama calls midterm votes urgent in rebuke of Trump 'Our democracy depends on it'

Up until this point, Obama has strayed away from directly attacking President Trump, but according to those with knowledge of the speech, it is expected to provide his most pointed rebuke to date of the current president. "He is a symptom, not a cause".

Trump acknowledged that Obama was "trying to take credit" for the economic boom that the United States was experiencing after he got elected.

Chelsea Brossard, Harder's campaign manager, called Saturday an "all hands on deck moment" for the campaign and said they were "proud to have this level of support as we begin the final stretch".

"It's as old as time".

The county's economy has evolved to more services and high-tech jobs that attract white-collar workers who are inclined to vote Democratic. "Where there's a vacuum in our democracy, when we are not participating, we're not paying attention, when we're not stepping up - other voices fill the void".

Obama has long held that he would only step back into the political arena if he thought that America's political norms were in danger.

Obama never said Trump's name during his fundraising speech for the DNC and instead urged Democrats to stop "moping" and get to work for candidates. "Better is always worth fighting for", Obama said.

"He said, what did you think of president Obama's speech, and I said said, 'I'm sorry, I watched it, but I fell asleep.' I found he's very good, very good for sleeping", Trump said with a smirk. "The stakes really are higher".

He later added: "This is not normal". "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".

He says, "I'm not making that up".

The solution, he said, is not the purported resistance movement inside the administration that is working to thwart Trump's worst impulses, as described by a senior official who this week wrote an anonymous New York Times op-ed.

Forecasters said Florence was expected to become an extremely risky major hurricane sometime Monday, and remain that way for days. It's expected to strengthen through Tuesday before beginning to weaken.

"What's gonna fix our democracy is you", he said. I am being serious here.

He described Obama's so-called "recovery" as the weakest economic recovery since the Great Depression.

"Are you kidding?" Pirro said. In August 2017, Trump was criticized for saying there was "blame on both sides" for the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

"We're supposed to stand up to discrimination", he said.

Former US President Barack Obama who traces his roots to Kenya, however, defended the importance of politics in development of nations, saying the biggest threat to prosperity of democracy were individuals who stayed home on voting day. The adviser was not authorized to discuss Obama's thinking publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Pence said it's "very disappointing" to see Obama break with the tradition of former presidents, who largely shun the campaign trail, and "become so political".

National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Steve Stivers said Friday that Obama's campaign events will help Republicans.

In the speech, Obama send a strong message that the only way to tame a powerful government controlled by a few individuals was through democracy by organised many.

"Doubling down on that strategy won't work in 2018 either".

Trump aides were allegedly concerned about the effect Obama's speech would have on President Trump, with Politico reporting there are fears from the Trump camp that Obama would get inside the president's head ahead of midterm elections.
