Obama urges Americans to reject leaders who stoke hatred
CNN: President Obama zings Donald Trump, birthers at White House Correspondents' Dinnercon
A day after former President Barack Obama sharply criticized divisive language on race and hate from "our leaders" -- but not mentioning President Donald Trump by name -- Trump on Tuesday hit back at the rebuke from the first African American president. Obama, in a rare tweet Monday afternoon, responded to the controversy surrounding the weekend's mass shootings in Texas and Ohio, saying, "We should soundly reject language coming out of the mouths of any of our leaders that feeds a climate of fear and hatred or normalizes racist sentiments; leaders who demonize those who don't look like us, or suggest that other people, including immigrants, threaten our way of life, or refer to other people as subhuman or imply that America belongs to just one certain type of people. And it's time for the overwhelming majority of Americans of goodwill, or every race and faith and political party, to say as much -- clearly and unequivocally," Obama added. Trump fired back in tweets on Tuesday morning, apparently paraphrasing what was said on "Fox and Friends" earlier in the day to make his point. Not many people said Obama is out of Control. Mass shootings were happening before the President even thought about running for Pres. They want to continue to push that racist narrative.
The Take with Rick Klein. Words fueled Barack Obama's rise -- so much so that their import was the subject of an intense primary debate back in , with Hillary Clinton dismissing "speeches versus solutions, talk versus action. Now as a former president, Obama is again coming down on the side of words mattering. Obama lent his voice as Democrats on the campaign trail and in Congress applied new pressure on their Republican colleagues in the wake of the weekend shootings in Texas and Ohio. That pressure is coming on gun legislation , but also in confronting President Donald Trump's past words and what they represent. Trump's first formal address after the shootings expressed a desire for bipartisanship and congressional action , though with few specifics.
Analysis by Zachary B. Wolf , CNN. CNN It is a strange fact of unfolding American history that the country's first black President should be followed in office by a President who has openly said racist things. President Obama had 32 mass shootings during his reign. Not many people said Obama is out of Control.
Today, the consoler in chief finally emerged to comfort the nation after the massacres in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. No, not President Donald Trump. He spoke, too , in White House remarks read stiffly from a teleprompter, using a lexicon that sounds stunted coming from him. It is vintage Obama. There is the sense of consolation that seemed to come naturally to him—in any case, he got horrifically frequent practice at striking this tone during his eight years in office.
It was nice to hear Donald Trump finally condemn white-supremacist violence. Trump sounded almost like he was speaking at gunpoint. In sum, it was not a morally or psychologically satisfying event — not that anyone, even Trump fans, expects from him a cathartic response to violence against innocent people, the ultimate losers. There is the sense of consolation that seemed to come naturally to him— in any case, he got horrifically frequent practice at striking this tone during his eight years in office. Yet he remains immensely popular, not only with Democrats but with the population as a whole ….
