Trump meanwhile said he fell asleep during the former president's speech, and said Democrats would have caused a negative GDP growth.

"What happened to the Republican party?". Today, former President Barack Obama signaled that he's stepping back into the fray by directly rebuking sitting President Donald Trump.

It's the first time 44's publicly attacked 45 since leaving office and, honestly, it's the kind of talk Democrats have been dying to hear from Obama. One commentator sniped that it was Obama "lectures" that give the U.S. Trump. "I found he's very good - very good for sleeping!" When most Republican elites who are skeptical of Trump use the word "normal", they have in mind the policy agenda supported by Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell.

"On Friday, President Obama will offer new thoughts on this moment and what it requires from the American people".

"The more former President Obama speaks about the "good ol years" of his presidency, the more likely President Trump is to get re-elected", the South Carolina Republican tweeted after an Obama speech Friday blasting the president.

The FBI said that the red slippers, stolen from the Judy Garland Museum in Minnesota in 2005, have been recovered after 13 years. Another pair had previously been given to a contest victor in 1940; those were sold them to a private collector in 1988.

But he fiercely repudiated the brand of Republicanism being practiced in the Trump era, citing the White House and Congress' refusal to punish Russian Federation harshly for interfering in the 2016 election, and of rapidly expanding the federal deficit.

The U.S., Obama stressed, is experiencing "dangerous times", and the November midterms offer voters "the chance to restore some semblance of sanity to our politics". "Suddenly deficits do not matter", Obama said. The theme of Obama's message was that progress always creates a backlash to progress. Republicans passed a tax bill that exploded the deficit by $1.5 trillion, Obama noted.

Barack Obama's post-presidential retreat into the private world seems to be over. Obama's speech castigated Trump as the product of a party that long ago went mad.

"We are supposed to stand up to bullies, not follow them", Mr Obama said. Tomorrow, the former president will stump for House Democratic candidates from California at an event in Orange County, a conservative-leaning part of California where Republicans are at risk of losing several congressional seats.

Historically, midterms are lightly attended and Obama made a point of reminding his audience that only one in five young people voted in the 2014 midterm election.
