Obama rips Trump, GOP for ‘mak­ing stuff up’

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Nation & World -

For­mer Pres­i­dent Barack Obama crit­i­cized Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s ten­ure in of­fice Fri­day in fiery speeches in Mil­wau­kee and Detroit that took aim at him and other Repub­li­cans for “mak­ing stuff up.”

The speeches were among Obama’s sharpest and most di­rect take­downs of Trump’s pres­i­dency, although the for­mer pres­i­dent never men­tioned Trump by name.

Obama cited a re­cent Trump com­ment that he would pass a tax cut be­fore the No­vem­ber elec­tion. Obama then told his au­di­ence that “Con­gress isn’t even in ses­sion be­fore the elec­tion! He just makes it up!”
