Barack Obama Slammed the Trump Administration While Campaigning in Florida

Obama's supporters drowned out shouts from hecklers by chanting "bring it home", the catchphrase Gillum, who is also the mayor of Tallahassee, called up on the campaign trail.

"With Governor Scott's high support among decided Hispanic voters and room to grow with his Republican base, this campaign is right where Governor Scott would like it to be the weekend before Election Day".

That retort came after Obama had already essentially laughed off hecklers.

President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama exchanged tough words Friday as they sought to rally their parties' base voters in the final days before the midterm elections. Randy Hultgren and Peter Roskam from Chicago-area congressional seats.

Obama argued much the same during portions of his speech, calling Trump's recent decision to send thousands of troops to the border to defend against a group of migrants that is still hundreds of miles away "a political stunt" - and an affront to service members who "deserve better than that".

It did not take long for the video to go viral, with many praising the former USA president Barack Obama. Twenty-seven states plus the District of Columbia have recorded more early votes at this point in the campaign than they did in all of 2014, according to The Election Project at the University of Florida, which tracks turnout.

The races in Georgia and Florida are, perhaps more than any other on the wide and varied 2018 map, a referendum on the first two years of the Trump era - and whether Democrats have nailed down a path for defeating the President's acolytes in the Republican Party. Trump has denied trying to instill fear as a reason to vote Republican on Election Day.

That race pitting Abrams against Republican Brian Kemp, the state's top elections overseer, has become a flashpoint for allegations of voter suppression by Democrats due to the state's strict voter-identification law. At the moment, Nelson is the only Democrat holding statewide office in Florida. And to tell their friends and families to vote'.

As much as anything Obama and Trump said, the pair's travel schedules underlined a common goal: turning out their parties' bases.

Trump also defended his decision to focus nearly exclusively on the migrants and immigration in the closing days of the election.

Trump said that Obama's assertion that "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act proved false. Bill Nelson, the three-time incumbent Democratic senator from Florida seeking his fourth term. Like other Democrats in the state, he still expects Manchin to win.
