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

Obama speaks at the memorial service of Senator John Mc Cain at National Cathedral in Washington Sept. 1 2018

Next week he'll be in OH to campaign for Senator Richard Cordray and other Democrats.

In his speech, Obama said Trump was the "symptom, not the cause" of the current political situation.

She added that there are still unanswered questions about the IRS' targeting of conservative groups, in addition to questions about the Obama DOJ and FBI's role with the dossier and FISA surveillance of the Trump campaign. "I found he's very good".

Pollak went on to say, "When Obama takes credit for the economic recovery, he ignores the fact that it was the slowest recovery in the post-War era, largely due to his policies".

Turning his sights on his own party, Obama said Democrats won't win in the November midterm elections by "dismissing" parts of the country as "racist, sexist, or homophobic". "The stakes really are higher".

"Democrats need all hands on deck to take back the House, and we could not be more honored to have President Barack Obama's inspirational voice and unifying message on the campaign trail, with his first stop in Southern California", Rep. He has also said the Times should reveal the author "for National Security purposes" and that Attorney General Jeff Sessions should investigate. 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.

The Republican Party's refusal to compromise with Obama on health care, climate, deficit reduction, and so on was not because Obama treated them too arrogantly or refused to address the deficit seriously. I'm not making that up. that's not hypothetical.

Apple's new 6.5-inch handset could be called the 'iPhone XS Max'
While the low-end model could be a great entry point for price-conscious users, the iPhone XS is sure to be the star of the show. Since it was nowhere to be found following Apple's accidental leak, hopefully this new video will help fill the void.

And while some within the administration have come forward - albeit anonymously - this week to sound alarm bells over what they consider to be Trump's unfitness for office, both in an unsigned op-ed in The New York Times and a forthcoming book from journalist Bob Woodward, those actions aren't enough, Obama argued. That's not how our democracy's supposed to work.

"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", Mr Obama said. I am being serious here. That's not how our democracy is supposed to work.

"These people are not elected!"

"Let's just remember when this economy started" improving, he said.

Obama was referring to Trump's failure to quickly and directly condemn neo-Nazis who marched past year in Charlottesville, Virginia. We're supposed to stand up to bullies, not follow them. "How hard can that be, to say that Nazis are bad?" The speech will be a preview of the argument Obama will make this fall campaign season.

Both parties have encouraged their core supporters to get to the polls on November 6, when Democrats need to pick up 23 seats in the House of Representatives and two seats in the Senate to gain majorities in Congress and slam the brakes on Trump's agenda.

Next Thursday, Obama leads a rally in Cleveland for Ohio governor candidate Richard Cordray and other Ohio Democrats.
