Barack Obama is jumping back into campaign-mode

"He is a symptom, not a cause".

While voters in California stepped it up for Clinton in the 2016 presidential elections, giving her a 4 million vote edge over Trump, Orange County has remained steadfastly Republican.

Mr Trump, meanwhile, claims he fell asleep watching Mr Obama's speech. "It works for me", Whitaker said.

However Pence acknowledged Obama's criticism would procedure a honest distinction between Democrats and Republicans within the advertising and marketing and marketing campaign.

"He's the ideal person to galvanize young people and minorities to go out and vote, which they don't normally do in midterms", said Shrum, who directs the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics at the University of Southern California. "But just a glance at recent headlines should tell you that this moment really is different".

"That is not a check, I'm being serious here".

Rubio agreed with Obama's sentiment that divisiveness is not a character trait presidents should emulate.

Trump has urged his supporters to vote for Republican candidates to support his agenda, and in a speech in Montana on Thursday, he raised the specter of impeachment by Democrats to rally his base.

Obama also addressed Trump's tone-deaf comments previous year, when the president claimed that there were "some very fine people on both sides" during the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that saw white supremacists squaring off against anti-racism protesters.

"We have the chance to flip the House of Representatives and make sure that there are real checks and balances in Washington", he said.

He also said that Trump is "capitalizing on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years".

He said stakes were high not just for Democrats but for all Americans, as "people feel scared" about a litany of issues: a troubled health care system, the high costs of education, a warming climate and more.

Republicans, and many naïve journalists, liked to attribute the hysterical right-wing backlash against Barack Obama to a sudden upsurge in fiscal conservatism.

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. How hard can it be to say that Nazis are bad?'

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.

Meanwhile, a string of Mr Trump's most senior cabinet members have denied responsibility for the explosive account of how his own team was trying to frustrate the United States president's wishes.

Democrats are counting on a strong showing in California in November's elections in the battle for congressional control.

Democrats certainly hope so as the midterms loom, with candidates reportedly flooding Obama's advisers with requests for personal appearances on the campaign trail. "Cynicism led too many people to turn away from politics and stay home on election day".
