Obama Takes a Swipe at Donald Trump With 'America's Pretty Darn Great Right Now'

The president touted the economy and accused Republicans of "doomsday" talk.

“I don’t expect that these facts and this evidence will convince some of the politicians out there to change their doomsday rhetoric, talking about how terrible America is, but the American people should be proud of what they have achieved because this speaks to their resilience, innovation risk taking and grit.”

“There’s a huge gap between the rhetoric that’s going on out there and the reality of success that we’re seeing in America’s economy even as we acknowledge that there’s more work that can be done,” he said.
