Trump is the symptom and not the cause – Obama
Reading Time: 1 minute

Former President Barack Obama said Friday his successor, President Donald Trump, is “the symptom, not the cause” of division and polarization in the U.S.

Trump, the former president said, is “just capitalizing on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years.”

His comments came during a speech at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he accepted an ethics in government award. The remarks served as Obama’s first steps into the political fray ahead of the fall campaign. While he has endorsed candidates and appeared at fundraising events, he has spent much of his post-presidency on the political sidelines.
