BREAKING: Bitter Obama Just Claimed Trump “Set America Back 50 Years”

Barack Obama just claimed President Trump has set America back 50 years.
Well, 50 years ago in 1967 America was a manufacturing powerhouse, our national debt was only a measly 340 billion compared to 20 trillion and we did not have the massive trade deficits with foreign countries we do now.
Super Bowl 1 was also played in 1967… and every single NFL player STOOD for the National Anthem.
Perhaps taking some cues from the past culturally and economically is NOT such a bad thing.
Barack Obama called on voters to reject a growing “politics of division” and implied Donald Trump had set American democracy “back 50 years” as he returned to the campaign trail for the first time since leaving the White House.
In his first political speeches for nearly a year, the former president took thinly veiled swipes at his Republican successor as he condemned “folks who are deliberately trying to make folks angry” for a “short-term tactical advantage”.
He told rallies in New Jersey and Virginia that voters could send a powerful message about the type of politics they want by backing Democrats in 7 November elections in the two states.
Addressing a cheering crowd in Newark, New Jersey, Mr Obama said: “What we can’t have is the same old politics of division that we have seen so many times before, that dates back centuries.”
Without mentioning Mr Trump by name, he added: “Some of the politics we see now, we thought we put that to bed. That’s folks looking back 50 years. It’s the 21st century, not the 19th century.”
At a later stop in Richmond, Virginia, the Democrat said modern politics increasingly did not reflect basic American values of inclusivity and was driving people away from the process and corroding democracy.
“We’ve got folks who are deliberately trying to make folks angry, to demonise people who have different ideas, to get the base all riled up because it provides a short-term tactical advantage. Sometimes that feels frustrating,” he said.
