Obama Urges Americans to Vote, Says Donald Trump is a 'Symptom'
Former President Barack Obama made a speech at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign on Friday urging Americans to vote in November because the U.S.’s democracy “depends on it.”
Obama said this November’s elections are more important than any he can remember in his lifetime. He said the stakes are higher and the consequences of apathy are more dire
“It 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 said.
Meantime, President Donald Trump said Obama’s speech bored him. “Sorry, I watched it, but I fell asleep. I found he is very good for sleeping. I think he was trying to take some credit, he was trying to take credit for this incredible thing that is happening to our country," said Trump.
