Obama attacks 'crazy stuff' from Trump White House


Former President Obama
Former US President Barack Obama has launched a stinging attack on Donald Trump and the “crazy stuff that is coming out of this White House”.
“This is not normal, these are extraordinary times and they are dangerous times,” Mr Obama told students at the University of Illinois.
Mr Obama called for “a restoration of honesty and decency and lawfulness in our government”.
The ex-president has kept a low profile since he left office in 2017 until now.
In Friday’s speech, he said that American democracy depended on his audience turning out to vote in the November’s congressional mid-term elections.
Mr Obama was also scathing about Mr Trump’s initial restraint when asked last year to condemn far-right protesters in Charlottesville, North Carolina.
“How hard can that be?” said Mr Obama. “Saying Nazis are bad?” (BBC)
