Former President Barack Obama lambasted President Trump during a speech made to students at the University of Illinois.
Mentioning Trump directly by name, Obama told students, “We are Americans. We’re supposed to stand up to bullies, not follow them.”
Obama also made a shot against anti-establishment, populist sentiment which helped propel Trump into the White House in 2016.
“It did not start with Donald Trump. He is a symptom, not the cause,” Obama said. “He’s just capitalizing on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years.”
The former President even went as far as seeming to suggest that Trump defends White supremacists. “How hard can that be, saying that Nazis are bad?”, Obama said.
During a critical election year, Obama is making rounds in efforts to promote Democratic candidates.
Throughout the length of Trump’s presidency, Obama has worked clandestinely to undermine the White House agenda of lowering taxes, strengthening borders, and promoting economic nationalism in the face of jobs destruction at the hands of globalist forces.
Wouldn’t it be something if Trump decided to launch a huge investigation into the many crimes committed under the previous Obama regime?
