Barack Obama Rebukes Donald Trump Publicly For First Time

"President Trump opens the jar, and he said, I loosened it for you", said Mr. McCarthy on Fox Business Network's "Sunday Morning Futures". "It's radical. It's a vision that says our protection of our power is all that matters", Obama said.

The former president jumped into the campaign fray Saturday in Anaheim, Calif., a former Republican stronghold, to remind voters to cast ballots for Democratic congressional candidates in the upcoming midterm elections, ABC News reported.

But Pirro and other Trump supporters immediately slammed the speech.

Mr Obama's speech was notably shorter and more restrained than the previous day's fiery remarks in IL, when he attacked US President Donald Trump more frontally. Instead, Obama will mock the president in ways he doesn't even see coming.

Obama is seeking to rally support for Democrats as Americans prepare to head to the voting booth November 6 in elections that will see one-third of Senate seats up for grabs, as well as all seats in the House of Representatives. "He is a symptom, not the cause", he said.

Obama also took aim at the Republican Party directly saying "the politics of resentment and paranoia has unfortunately found a home" in the party.

"I'm here today because this is one of those pivotal moments when every one of us as citizens of the United States need to determine just who we are, what it is that we stand for", Obama said.

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.

The apartment doors at the complex are all similar, Kinsey said, but Jean's doorstep had a bright red mat. The Dallas Police Department is conducting a joint investigation with the District Attorney's Office.

"When we don't vote, when we take our basic rights and freedoms for granted, when we turn away and stop paying attention and stop engaging and stop believing and look for the newest diversion, the electronic versions of bread and circuses, then other voices fill the void", he said.

During his speech, Obama highlighted the seven Democratic candidates now running in the region and in highly contested counties.

Obama also delivered a message via a NowThis video released Saturday urging young people to get out and vote. While he has endorsed candidates and appeared at fundraising events, he has spent much of his post-presidency on the political sidelines.

"If you thought that elections don't matter, I hope these last two years have corrected that impression", he said. "The biggest threat to our democracy is indifference".

If Democrats win control of one or both chambers in Congress in November, they would be able not just to stymie Trump's agenda but to launch investigations of the Trump administration.

He was especially stern in his condemnation of Trump's pattern of pressuring law enforcement officials, including US Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

He also accused Trump of playing to bigots. "Saying that Nazis are bad?" "We're supposed to stand up to discrimination", he said.
