Obama's criticism of Trump "very disappointing": Pence

Students waiting

Bongino also said Americans are sick and exhausted of being talked down to by "elitist goofballs" like Obama, and slammed a quote from former White House staffer Ben Rhodes' book, "The World As It Is", in which Obama apparently said he wondered if America was ready for his presidency.

"To have President Obama come out and tout his policies that resulted in less than 2 percent growth, saw tax increases, Obamacare regulation and doubling the national debt it was very disappointing but frankly I think it just illuminates the choice the American people had in the midterm elections", Mr. Pence said on "Fox News Sunday".

"This is a government for everybody, it's not for sale, that's what we believe in", Obama said.
"Your lies, your policies, and your divisiveness".

'It did not start with Donald Trump, he's a symptom, not the cause. "The consequences of any of us sitting on the sidelines are more dire". He is just capitalizing on resentment that politicians have been fanning for years.

"There are people out there right now that are counting on us to make sure they still have health care after this election", Obama said.

The speech as a whole constituted Obama's harshest, most direct rebuke of Trump and his administration since he departed the White House.

"You desperately tried to defeat Trump and it didn't work", she said.

"We are Americans, we're supposed to stand up to bullies".

Turkish President Erdoğan urges ceasefire in Idlib to avert ’bloodbath’
The meeting in Tehran marks the third time the presidents of Turkey , Russia , and Iran have met over Syria in less than a year. US President Donald Trump warned against a wide-scale operation in Idlib tweeting that "hundreds of thousands might die".

When Barack Obama took the stage in front of an audience of students at the University of IL on Friday, he was not there to mess around.

Obama gave shout-outs to seven Democratic candidates in competitive House districts across California that are considered crucial to the party's efforts to oust Republicans from control. "I found he's very good - very good for sleeping", he said.

The speech was "something different", said Esther Castaneda, 34, a small business owner from Orange, California.

Obama says there are no problems that can't be solved if "we're working together and we're true to the traditions that are the best in America".

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

He criticized Republicans for taking credit for an economic recovery that began under his presidency, and for enabling Trump to pressure the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice to punish his political enemies.

He noted that he doesn't anticipate Obama getting into a "small-hand, name-calling kind of thing" that Trump would relish in. At a fundraiser in North Dakota, the USA president told a crowd of supporters: "I watched it, but I fell asleep". In the social media targeted clip, he said that "basic norms and principles" have been "increasingly violated" and pushed young people to get out and vote. "You can not sit back and wait for a savior".

Time will tell whether a so-called Democratic "blue wave" happens in the midterms as some Democrats hope.
