Obama on Trump rally protests: "distillation of what’s been happening in their party for more than a decade,"
President Barack Obama weighed in on the unrest in Chicago on Friday, saying that the violence surrounding a number of Donald Trump's rallies was a "distillation of what’s been happening in their party for more than a decade," while talking at a Democratic National Committee event in Austin, Texas, according to a Texas Tribune report.
"This is the guy who was sure that I was born in Kenya, who just won’t let it go, and all this same Republican establishment, they we’re saying nothing," Obama added. "As long as it was directed at me, they were fine with it. It was a hoot."
