Obama: Trump Is 'a Symptom, Not the Cause'

On Saturday, Obama offered what he said was an antidote to political despair - voting.

"What's gonna fix our democracy is you".

Former Obama communications director Dan Pfeiffer said on CNN that Obama can effectively reach voters in parts of the country he won in 2012, but which voted for Trump in 2016.

Here are the notable important things he said during the speech, including this helpful reminder about democracy: "This is not a rock concert".

"What bothers me is that if what was written was true, then there is a cabal in the White House that's working against the president", said Paterson, who also served as the New York Democratic Party's chairman.

"We're supposed to stand up to discrimination", he said.

Delta Fire Explodes in Size; I-5 Closed At Least Until Sunday
California Highway Patrol Officer Jason Morton said the blaze is 0% contained and still burning along Interstate 5. The Delta fire is believed to have been human-caused, but details aren't available at this time.

"He's just capitalizing on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years", the former president added.

There was no immediate reaction from Trump, who, in remarks to a crowd in North Dakota, took Obama's speech Friday in stride.

In his speech, Obama specifically cited Trump having already put pressure on his AG to use the criminal justice system "as a cudgel to punish political opponents", and declared that a United States President should not "threaten freedom of the press because they say things or publish stories we don't like".

"That is not a check, I'm being serious here. Saying that Nazis are bad?" - his denunciation of the media - "I complained plenty about Fox News. you never heard me threaten to shut them down" to his desire to build a border wall with Mexico. Will Obama be able to move the coalition that elected him twice - including minorities and young people - to show up for Democrats when his name is not on the ballot?

The Times says the op-ed, published Wednesday, was written by a senior official in the Trump administration.

"We're going to kick off our bedroom slippers, we're putting on our marching shoes", he said.

U.S. charges regime-linked North Korean in WannaCry, Sony hacks
The WannaCry ransomware virus infected computers in 150 countries and crippled parts of the British health care system. Park and Chosun Expo, also known as Korean Expo Joint Venture, were also targeted with financial sanctions by the U.S.

But he made clear his main goal on Saturday was getting Democrats and independents, who are a big bloc of voters here, to turn out in November.

"The status quo pushes back", he said. "When you vote, you've got the power to make sure white nationalists don't feel emboldened to march with their hoods off or their hoods on in Charlottesville in the middle of the day". This is not a rock concert.

He also criticised Mr Trump's response to the violence previous year at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that resulted in the death of one person.

He ended the speech by saying he believed in them and promising he'll be "right there with you every step of the way".

Mr Obama, reacting to the article, said "that's not how our democracy is supposed to work".
