Former US President Barack Obama warned of divisions fueling a “dangerous climate” in the country’s politics, three days before midterm elections that will determine control of Congress.
The biggest names of the Democrats and Republicans – Obama, President Biden and his predecessor Donald Trump – are in Pennsylvania today hoping to sway the balance in a crucial Senate race between Democrat John Fetterman and Republican celebrity doctor Mehmet Oz .
Speaking at a campaign rally in Pittsburgh, Obama said the politically motivated attack on the husband of Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was the result of hate speech.
“This habit we have of demonizing political opponents, of saying crazy things, creates a dangerous climate,” Obama said, without referring directly to Republicans.
“You have politicians who do not seek to unite people, but to incite division and make us angry and afraid of each other, just for their own benefit,” the former US president argued.
