Obama: How hard is it to say Nazis are bad?

"It's truly exciting to welcome President Obama to Southern California, and I welcome the opportunity to campaign alongside him and energize voters ahead of the final two months of the campaign", Cisneros said in a statement.

"If these candidates win, I'm absolutely confident that Washington will start working better!"

But Democrats saw the president's return to the trail in another way.

Obama plans to hit the campaign trail for Democratic candidates in competitive races all across the country through October, appearing first in California on Saturday and OH next week.

"I'm here today because this is one of those pivotal moments when every one of us, as citizens of the United States, need to determine just who it is that we are, just what it is that we stand for", Obama said on Friday, kicking off his campaign schedule for the mid-term elections in November.

Mr Trump is "just capitalising on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years", the former president said.

National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Steve Stivers said Friday that Obama's campaign events will help Republicans.

Obama's strong partisan rhetoric and critique of the Trump administration is at odds with the long-standing tradition that even he mentioned which has former presidents largely remaining silent about their successors.

Slamming Trump's policies, he further said that he handed out tax cuts without regard to deficits, slashed the safety net wherever it could. Ordinary people, Obama said, fought, marched and voted for equality, rather than being "bystanders" to history. "Where there's a vacuum in our democracy, when we are not participating, we're not paying attention, when we're not stepping up - other voices fill the void". "The best thing the president (Obama) could say is this: Vote, vote, vote". Instead, Obama's advisers believe his midterm message will more closely resemble the remarks the former President delivered in South Africa as part of an event honoring the late Nelson Mandela.

"He is a re-energizer for progressives who care about what's at stake and a reminder for independents that we can have a President who isn't an embarrassment to the country", said Jesse Ferguson, a Democratic strategist who worked on Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign.

Speaking at the University of IL where he accepted an award for ethics in government, Obama foreshadowed the themes he is expected to take to the campaign trail in the coming weeks while stumping for Democrats before the November midterm elections. "Barack Obama wasn't ready for America", said Bongino.

When Barack Obama took the stage in front of an audience of students at the University of IL on Friday, he was not there to mess around.

He also criticised Mr Trump's response to the violence a year ago at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that resulted in the death of one person. Pirro said. "How dare you!"

Obama has been playing an active role in the lead up to November's midterm elections.

The speech was a preview of the arguments Obama is expected to make as he starts campaigning for Democrats on the ballot this fall. Obama was "a lot lower key than yesterday's speech".
