I complained but never called them

I complained but never called them "enemy of the people"

Here is what seven right-wingers have said in response to Obama's speech.

Trump said Obama was trying to take credit for this "incredible thing that's happening to our country".

And in accepting Trump, Obama said, Republicans have abandoned many of their long-held guiding principles, like forgoing lower deficits in favor of tax cuts and maintaining a hard line with Russian Federation.

Democrats are hoping to ride an anti-Donald Trump "blue wave" to gain seats and secure control of the House of Representatives, the lower chamber of Congress, and are also battling for seats in the Senate. "I have to say to President Obama, it wasn't him, and if the Democrats got in with their agenda ... instead of having 4.2 (percent GDP growth) up, you have 4.2 down, you'd be in negative numbers".

The November elections have been seen as a referendum on Mr Trump, who has fulfilled campaign promises to cut taxes and regulations.

However, the data, in fact, show that Obama oversaw a steady, if somewhat disappointing, economic recovery, and those trends have continued in Trump's first term.

Obama is also expected to campaign in IL and Pennsylvania later this month and headline a fundraiser for the National Democratic Redistricting Committee in New York City, which is looking to reverse gerrymandering that has helped Republicans in some congressional districts.

Former President Barack Obama has urged an audience of college students to not just vote in the midterm elections, but to lead the fight against President Donald Trump and his allies. That's how real change starts, Obama said. He asked what had happened to the Republican Party.

Before coming to the Giants, he played all nine of his major-league seasons with the Pirates. De Paula, 20, has been pitching for the Yankees' Short-Season A affiliate in Staten Island.

"Former presidents generally have avoided critiquing their successors, but Obama has not kept up that tradition, having made a number of critical remarks about Trump since he left office in January 2017".

He very bluntly slated Trump for not condemning the racially-charged protests, saying: "How hard can that be, saying that Nazis are bad?"

"We are Americans - we're supposed to stand up to bullies, not follow them".

Trump quickly responded on Friday, telling a crowd in Fargo, North Dakota, that he "fell asleep" watching Obama's speech.

The speech comes ahead of his first midterm campaign events, beginning Saturday, in the political battleground of Orange County, Calif., where he will stump for several Democratic House candidates. Obama's latest foray into politics is likely to ignite Republicans, including Trump.

Most Republicans, he said, have been silent or "unwilling to find their backbone" to stand up to Trump. President Trump has warned his supporters that if they don't turn up to the voting booth, he could be impeached. "That's the only way it could happen", he told a Montana rally.

He will appear at a September 13 rally in OH with Richard Cordray, a former Obama appointee, who is running for governor in a state that is also one of the top targets for the Holder effort.
