Former President Obama called out President Donald Trump and Republicans during a speech at the University of Illinois in Urbana (more video below).
Obama told his youthful audience that racism did not “start with Donald Trump”:
He is a symptom, not the cause. He’s just capitalizing on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years.
Obama also took a shot at Republicans who are bragging about the economy:
When you hear how great the economy’s doing right now, let’s just remember when this recovery started.
I mean, I’m glad it’s continued, but when you hear about this economic miracle that’s been going on, when the monthly job numbers come out, Republicans say, “It’s a miracle.”
I have to remind them and say those job numbers are the same as they were in 2015 and 2016.
