"Remember who started" economic growth, Obama says at Vegas rally

Former President Barack Obama delivered a biting critique of Republicans in Congress and President Donald Trump's administration on Monday. He implied the current administration lacks honesty and lawfulness.

"I don't believe in just making stuff up", said Obama, constantly urging his listeners to get out and vote to make sure that the progressive changes he implemented - but many of which Trump and congressional Republicans are trying to undo - were consolidated.

The rally was focused on the state's Senate race where Democrat Jacky Rosen is challenging the Republican senator now in office, Dean Heller.

"This November's elections are more important than any I can remember in my lifetime, and that includes when I was on the ballot", Obama said at a Las Vegas political rally, reports Efe news.

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

"There is only one real check on abuses of power, one real check on bad policy, it's you and your vote", Obama said to a crowd of 2,000 supporters.

At a rally in Las Vegas, former President Barack Obama said he deserves some credit for the "economic miracles" that President Trump is bragging about.

She added a hashtag for "Double Standard". Organizers also brought in actress America Ferrera, musician J Balvin, and singers Salt-N-Pepa to fire up the crowd before Obama took the stage. Democrats have embraced more leftist policies of open borders and weak border security, which according to President Trump, is the primary reason upwards of a ten thousand migrant-caravan are headed to the United States.

He's particularly focused on Nevada's Senate race, one of the tightest in the country.

"We are a generous and welcoming people in the United States but those who enter the country illegally and those who employ them disrespect the rule of law and they are showing disregard for those who are following the law", Mr. Obama says in the clip.

"There is a vacuum in democracy, when we don't vote, when we take our rights for granted, when we turn the other way to politics because we think it's ugly and messy and we don't want to hear it, that's when the voices fill in the void, other voices, and demagogues start promising simple fixes to complicated problems, and they promise to fight for the little guy, and then they turn around and are helping corporations and billionaires and the most powerful do their bidding, he said".
