President Obama on Trump: 'I don't believe in just making stuff up'

Democrat Gary Witt canvasses a Las Vegas suburb urging people to vote ahead of the November midterm election

The former president urged the audience to "remember who started" the ongoing economic recovery Republicans are touting ahead of the November elections, noting that Democrats had to deal with a recession upon his election 10 years ago when the GOP ran "things into the ground".

Former President Barack Obama headlined a rally in Las Vegas with Democratic candidate for Senate Jacky Rosen and other Nevada Democrats on Monday.

He was also keen that voters "remember who started" the current economic upswing. "Ultimately there is only one real check on abuses of power, there's only one real check on bad policy and that is you and your vote". This kind of politics is not conservative, he said. Inside Elections rates the Nevada Senate race as a Toss-up. I don't believe in just making stuff up.

The former president then moved onto the economy and when he recounted Republican tax cuts, he appeared to take a not-so-subtle stab at Trump.

Obama won Nevada during his 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns and Democrat Hillary Clinton carried Nevada in 2016, but Republicans now hold all statewide offices and are hoping to sweep the state again this year. "I know you can bet on anything here in Vegas, but you don't want to bet that Republicans are going to protect your healthcare".

This assertion Obama made at a rally of supporters of the Democratic get together in Las Vegas. Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen is challenging Republican incumbent Dean Heller, the only Republican senator up for re-election in a state that Hillary Clinton won in 2016. He's said it verbatim, 'I'm on the ballot.' OK, so we'll think of it that way.

Amid plenty of inconsistency, Washington has not allowed an opponent to rush for more than 104 yards in a game so far this year. The Redskins twice had to settle for short field goals in the second half despite having first-and-goal opportunities.

Cowboys Trade For Wide Receiver Cooper
Over that same stretch, Devin Funchess, also 24 years old, has amassed 1,214 yards and 11 touchdowns, albeit on 33 more targets. He is expected to be able to play when the Cowboys return from their bye week to face the Tennessee Titans on November 5.

He was met with loud cheers at the arena at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Obama's rally included specific appeals to young people and Latinos, key demographics who can boost Democrat numbers if they participate.

Obama also touted the campaigns of Nevada gubernatorial candidate Steve Sisolak and U.S. House candidates Susie Lee and Steven Horsford.

Obama held nothing back in his disdain for the policies of President Trump and congressional Republicans.

The former president has generally kept a low profile since leaving office and has been selective about campaigning for Democrats in this year's midterm elections.
