Obama Called Out the Trump Administration at His Wisconsin Rally

Other targets include former Vice President Joe Biden, and critics of Donald Trump including Waters, actor-director Robert De Niro, and Sens.

Former President Barack Obama made a thinly veiled jab at President Donald Trump on Friday evening, saying it was wrong to use a position of power for attacking others as "enemies of the people and then suddenly pretending that you're concerned about civility".

"They didn't care about emails".

"I thank God no one's been hurt, and I thank the fearless and resourceful security and law enforcement people for protecting us", De Niro said in a statement.

Obama used the subject of Hillary Clinton's private email server to accuse Republicans of trying to "scare the heck out of people before every election" and also to mock Trump about the Chinese spying on his cellphone. "It shouldn't be Democratic or Republican to say you don't punish political opponents or threaten the freedom of the press just because you don't like what they say or write about you", Obama said. "He just makes it up!"

He cited Trump's recent comment stating that he would pass a tax cut before the November election. On Friday, he supported Wisconsin Democrats, including Governor Scott Walker's challenger, state schools superintendent Tony Evers, and Senator Tammy Baldwin.

Sri Lankan govt urged to condemn Khashoggi's killing
Saudi officials are now claiming that the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi was premeditated. US President Donald Trump has described the Saudi handling of Khashoggi's death "the worst cover-up ever ".

But aside from his gripes about the GOP, Obama also said the coming election is about something bigger than today's political battles.

"In Washington they have racked up enough indictments to field a football team", he said. "This is terrible". 'This is a national security crisis.' They didn't care about emails and you know how you know?

"Their promise to drain the swamp, that was not on the up and up", Obama added, "Nobody in my administration got indicted". Because if they did, they'd be up in arms right now that the Chinese are listening to the president's iPhone that he leaves in his golf cart'.

This version of the story corrects the 4th paragraph to say Obama's visit to Milwaukee, not Trump.

Low turnout in Milwaukee by African-Americans proved costly for Hillary Clinton in 2016 when she narrowly lost Wisconsin.

"I heard like a bomb", Dre, who declined to give his full name, said in a telephone interview.
