Obama asserted that Trump has merely been capitalizing on pent up resentment that politicians had been fanning for years prior.

Noting the history of former presidents avoiding the rough and tumble of politics, Obama acknowledged his sharp critique of Trump was something of a departure from tradition.

In a wide-ranging speech punctuated by frequent applause, Obama criticized the divisive politics of the era, decrying Trump's attacks on the media and the judiciary, his eagerness to work with Russian Federation while neglecting traditional alliances.

Vice President Mike Pence on Sunday accused old President Barack Obama of breaking with presidential custom, slamming the old commander in chief after he delivered scathing criticism of the Trump administration in a speech final week.

Obama's remarks on current political life not only took direct aim at Trump's presidency, but also at the broader Republican Party's capitulation to him. "It is us not doing what we're supposed to do", he said.

"We're going to take a look at what he had, what he gave, what he's talking about also where he is right now", Trump reporters on Air Force One on his way to a North Dakota campaign clambake.

The speech was a preview of the argument that Obama is likely to make throughout the fall.

In a rallying cry ahead of November's midterm elections, Obama told an audience at the University of IL that the United States was going through a period in which the "powerful and privileged" sought to keep people divided and angry. "Just a glance at recent headlines should tell you that this moment really is different", he added.

"I'm sorry, I watched it, but I fell asleep", he said. "I found that he's very, very good for sleeping".

Obama is set to appear later Saturday at the Anaheim Convention Center in the heart of Orange County, a once-solid Republican stronghold that voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election that Donald Trump won.

"Many Republicans have called our Republican headquarters to ask what we can do in response to President Obama's visit", Walters wrote.

Orange County Republican Chairman Fred Whitaker said earlier that Obama's visit represents a double-edged sword as his party is fundraising off the appearance.

Next week, Obama plans to campaign in Ohio for Richard Cordray, the Democratic nominee for governor, and Ohio Democrats.

In August, Obama endorsed 81 Democratic contenders in 14 states, emphasizing young, diverse candidates running for state-level offices in an attempt to help new party leaders establish themselves.

The objective for Democrats now is to ride against Trump supposition and turn out voters in November. "Obama's support of these already flawed candidates just highlights how out of touch Democrats are with the issues that matter most to voters in these districts".
