President Donald Trump slammed former President Barack Obama on Friday after his predecessor attacked him while giving a speech aimed at helping Democrats in the 2018 midterms.
“As a fellow citizen, not as a former president, but as a fellow citizen I am here to deliver a simple message,” Obama said. “You need to vote because our democracy depends on it.”
Obama went on to take multiple shots at Trump, saying that not voting this November will result in “dire consequences.”
Trump responded during a campaign rally, saying that he “fell asleep.”
“I’ve found he’s very good, very good for sleeping,” Trump said.
Trump took another shot at Obama while reading off some of his accomplishments to the crowd, asking the audience, “Isn’t this much more exciting than listening to President Obama’s speech?”
“Because we get things done,” Trump said.
