Lindsey Graham: Obama criticism of Trump bound to backfire

Fox News released a excerpt of an upcoming interview with the Vice President, where he said Obama had rolled out "the same exhausted arguments that he and liberals have made over the last eight years".

He also pointed out, in reaction to Obama's invocation of Fox News, that even though the former president never called the network the enemy of the people, the targeting of reporter James Rosen.

Just a day earlier, Obama had criticised the President for his relationship with Russian President Vladmir Putin and for failing to condemn white supremacists a year ago in Charlottesville.

With the adulation lavished on Obama's speech in IL on Friday, where he repeatedly took shots at Trump, saying Trump's Twitter feed is nothing more than an "electronic versions of bread and circuses", insiders worry Obama's return could throw Trump off his game.

Analysts say Obama's star status among Democrats will help drive turnout among African-American, Latino and young voters in key suburban House districts and cities.

"What happened to the Republican Party?" he said.

Trump responded to the speech at the top of a fundraiser in Fargo, North Dakota not long after.

"That's the story of America", he said.

"You can not sit back and wait for a savior", Obama said.

He said that Trump isn't the biggest threat to Americans - it's indifference.

One of the nation's top election battlegrounds just attracted the Democrats' biggest star, former President Barack Obama. "I found he's very good". And in a healthy democracy, it doesn't work.
