Former President Obama is finally speaking out against President Donald Trump.
While delivering a speech at the University of Illinois, Obama spoke a few issues. One being Trump capitalizing on resentment. Another being standing up to discrimination in our country. Obama replied to Trump’s statement about the Charlottesville protests having “good people on both sides,” saying “We are supposed to stand up to discrimination and we are sure as heck to stand up clearly and unequivocally to Nazi sympathizers.” Adding “How hard can that be, saying that Nazis are bad?”
Obama even mentions the recent alleged traitor in Trump’s administration, “And by the way the idea that everything will turn out OK because there are people inside the White House who secretly aren’t following the President’s orders,” he said. “That is not a check. I am being serious here. That is not how our democracy is supposed to work.”
