Obama Hits Back at Trump’s Depiction of the U.S.

President Obama “fiercely rejected Donald Trump’s depiction of an America in crisis on Friday, arguing that violent crime and illegal immigration have plunged under his leadership to their lowest rates in decades,” the AP reports.

Said Obama: “We’re not going to make good decisions based on fears that don’t have a basis in fact.”

He added: “This idea that American is somehow on the verge of collapse, this vision of violence and chaos everywhere, doesn’t really jibe with the experience of most people.”
