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

Barack Obama encourages people to vote:

"The biggest threat to our democracy is indifference and cynicism, a cynicism that has led too many people to turn away from politics, and to stay home on election day", said Obama.

On Saturday, he will stump for House Democratic candidates from California at an event in Orange County, a conservative-leaning part of California where Republicans are at risk of losing several seats.

Obama emphasized to the students the "stakes really are higher" regarding this year's midterms.

"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.

Republicans said voters won't find Obama's argument appealing.

"Isn't this much more exciting than listening to President Obama speak?" he asked the crowd.

At the time, Trump hesitated to denounce the violence, and said there were bad people on "both sides". "In two months we have a chance to restore some sanity to our politics". "We have the chance to flip the House of Representatives and make sure that there are real checks and balances in Washington". Next week he'll be in OH to campaign for Richard Cordray and other Democrats. Trump also bashed Obama for trying to take credit for the US' recent economic success, marked by record low unemployment and modest wage growth. "He gets the attention off Trump, and reminds Republicans why it's important to vote in the midterms".

Obama is also planning campaign trips to Pennsylvania in September, an Obama official said, as well as a NY fundraiser for the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, an organization led by former Attorney General Eric Holder, Obama's longtime friend.

Apple Issues Letter Responding to President Trump’s Proposed Tarrifs

Les Moonves Alleged To Have Sabotaged Janet Jackson's Career Over 'Wardrobe Malfunction'
Six women accused Moonves of sexual advances such as unwanted kissing and touching, the New Yorker reported in August. While Jackson's career was significantly damaged, Timberlake's flourished.

10 attacks Obama unleashed on Trump, GOP in midterm speech
Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell to make Palij's deportation his number one priority when he got to Berlin". Obama is likely to be less helpful in some of the most competitive Senate races playing out in states Trump won.

He also criticised Mr Trump's response to the violence past year at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that resulted in the death of one person.

That Illinois speech was a break from tradition - one where former commanders-in-chief don't criticize their successors - but Obama argued that Trump's presidency represented a time when everyone needed to stand up.

According to Obama, voting in new surprise candidates automatically brought hope and change which would transform livelihoods of every citizen thus those who never voted for anyone were an impediment to change and development.

Obama campaigned for congressional Democrats from California on Saturday, a day after he excoriated Trump in a speech in IL.

Obama has made some appearances since Trump took office - including headlining a fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee earlier this year - but the Trump era has complicated Obama's post-presidency.

"2016 is over, but President Obama is still dismissing the millions of voters across the country who rejected a continuation of his policies in favor of President Trump's plan for historic tax cuts, new jobs and economic growth", RNC spokesperson Ellie Hockenbury said in a statement.

"When you hear how great the economy's doing right now, let's just remember when this recovery started", he said.

The president responded to Obama's critical speech of his presidency during a fundraising speech in Fargo, North Dakota.
