  • Obama speaks at U of I: Trump is ‘capitalizing on resentment’

"It's not for sale".

"It shouldn't be Democratic or Republican to say that we don't target groups of people because of what they look like or how they pray", Obama said. "Not follow them. We're supposed to stand up to discrimination, and we're sure as heck supposed to stand up clearly and unequivocally to Nazi sympathizers", Obama said, in comments Pirro slammed as "a full-throttle savage attack on the president".

As per report in a forceful return to the political fray aimed at firing up Democratic voters ahead of key elections and since leaving office, the 44th U.S. president has pointedly avoided direct criticism of his successor, making a calculated effort not to utter Trump's name, but on Friday the gloves came off.

"This is a consequential moment in our history".

"It should not be a partisan issue to say that we do not pressure the attorney general or the Federal Bureau of Investigation to use the criminal justice system as a cudgel to punish our political opponents", Obama said.

He said that Trump isn't the biggest threat to Americans - it's indifference.

"It's apathy", he said.

Lincoln's Gettysburg Address was ridiculed by the "fake news" Trump thanks North Korea's Kim for promise to denuclearize during his tenure No NFL players visibly kneel during season opener MORE slammed former President Obama after his predecessor noted during a speech Friday that the recent USA economic recovery started while he was in office.

Obama spoke to a packed auditorium with an audience of about 1,100 students, faculty and community members.

Petrol touches Rs 90.11 in Maharashtra's Parbhani
In Chennai, petrol costs Rs 84.05 and diesel Rs 77.13. "Fuel prices have disturbed the budget of every household". It is clear that the prime reason why petrol and diesel are expensive is because of the central and state taxes.

The former president said he rejects the politics of fear and division and said all people deserve equal treatment. Obama said: "How hard can that be?" "He's just capitalizing on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years".

Obama hadn't publicly criticized Trump prior to the speech, although he took a veiled jab at the president in his eulogy for the late Sen.

President Trump pretended to be unmoved, saying, "I watched it but I fell asleep".

"What happened to the Republican Party?" he asked rhetorically.

Speaking at the University of IL where he accepted an award for ethics in government, Obama foreshadowed the themes he is expected to take to the campaign trail in the coming weeks while stumping for Democrats before the November midterm elections.

At the time, Trump hesitated to denounce the violence, and said there were bad people on "both sides". Each of the seven candidates that Obama campaigned for on Saturday fit that description. "I found he's very good - very good for sleeping", he said.

Obama's more veiled attack was a reference to the President's tweet about Attorney General Jeff Sessions last Monday that also lamented the indictments of GOP Reps. "If you are one of these folks who is watching cable news at your cocktail parties with your friends and you are saying "civilization is collapsing" and you are nervous and anxious, but that is not where you are putting all your time, energy and money, then either you don't actually think civilization is collapsing ... or you are not pushing yourself hard enough, and I would push harder". You didn't go out to vote.

The November elections have been seen as a referendum on Trump, who has fulfilled campaign promises to cut taxes and regulations but who faces a widening special counsel probe of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and growing questions about his fitness for office, even by some within his administration.
