Obama: Character of US 'is on the ballot'

DNA nabbed mail bomb suspect Cesar Sayoc for law enforcement: Terror expert

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".

The speeches were among Obama's sharpest and most direct takedowns of Trump's presidency, although the former president was careful to not mention Trump by name. Biden told the crowd that this election "is not about politics, it's about the character of our country". "He just makes it up".

At one point Obama said in Wisconsin: "Here's the thing". "You look at what happened to Steve Scalise".

"What we have not seen before, in our public life, is politicians just blatantly, repeatedly, baldly, shamelessly, lying", Obama said.

The White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders caught some flak on Thursday for echoing Trump's lines, linking what she called "negative" media coverage of the Trump administration to the political acrimony of the moment. He urged attendees to consider political events of the recent past, including Republicans' attempts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act and a voting record that contradicts recent claims that the GOP has always protected individuals with pre-existing conditions. Walker is being challenged by Democrat Tony Evers. He said voters can trust Sen.

He said, "In the last election, it was Hillary's emails".

The New York Times reported Wednesday that Russian Federation and China are eavesdropping on Trump's personal phone, which he still uses despite repeated requests from national security officials that he stick to more secured landlines.

"The president is certainly not responsible for sending suspicious packages to someone no more than Bernie Sanders was responsible for a supporter of his shooting up a baseball field practice", Sanders said. We don't even know where they are. Because if they did, they'd be up in arms right now as the Chinese are listening to the president's iPhone that he leaves in his golf cart.

"Their promise to drain the swamp, that was not on the up and up", Obama added, "Nobody in my administration got indicted".

Low turnout in Milwaukee by African-Americans proved costly for Hillary Clinton in 2016 when she narrowly lost Wisconsin. "I'm hopeful that despite all the noise, despite all the lies, we're going to come through all that".

The investigation, led by the FBI with the involvement of the Joint Terrorism Task Force of the NYPD, the US Postal Inspectors and other federal agencies and local law enforcement, depended heavily on the quick work of private security and US Postal Workers who detected bombs as they arrived at office buildings and post offices.
