Obama slams ‘politics of division’

Richmond: Barack Obama returned to the campaign trail on Thursday, railing against the “politics of division” after keeping a low profile and avoiding direct confrontation with his White House successor since leaving office.
The former president took aim at the fear and bitterness that marked the 2016 campaign which led to Donald Trump’s presidency. “What we can’t have is the same old politics of division that we have seen so many times before, that dates back centuries,” Obama said at the event in Newark for Phil Murphy.
