Adjust Comment Print

In a speech to Nevada Democrats, Mr. Obama derided Mr. Trump, without naming him in that clip, as merely being handed off a booming economy by the previous president and contrasted that with his own inheritance on the economy.

Former President Barack Obama rallied with Rep. Jacky Rosen, Heller's Democratic challenger, in Las Vegas Monday, warning that, "the consequences of you staying home would be profoundly unsafe to this country, to our democracy".

"This November's elections are more important than any I can remember in my lifetime, and that includes when I was on the ballot", Obama said at a Las Vegas political rally, reports Efe news.

Trump wrote in response to the remarks: 'I agree with President Obama 100%'.

"We simply can not allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently, and lawfully to become immigrants in this country", Obama said.

'We simply can not allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently and lawfully to become immigrants in this country'.

"All Americans ... are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country", Clinton said that night.

"We are a great Sovereign Nation".

Though Trump has been critical of most aspects of the Obama administration for a long time now, he actually does have a history of recognizing the work that Obama did to curb illegal immigration. Because ultimately there is only one real check on abuses of power.

Trump called the United States a "great sovereign nation, " stressing that the country would never simply allow people to enter illegally. The march appeared to begin as a group of about 160 who chose to band together in Honduras for protection against the gangs who prey on migrants traveling alone; it snowballed as the group moved north.

One of her supporters, Malerie Stanley, who arrived more than three hours before the rally to ensure she would get inside, said women's rights was the key issue for her in the midterms. In June, Obama gave a sharp criticism of Trump's controversial family separation policy at the U.S. -Mexico border.
