President Trump once again hit the road to speak directly to voters and he made one thing clear about his predecessor Barack Obama.
During a rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina on Monday night, the POTUS ripped the globalist Obama who is adored like a celebrity whenever he travels abroad by firing a shot at dear leader’s priorities.
President Trump: "And then I read where Obama is more popular in Germany than Trump. He's got to be, I'm making people pay their bills. He's got to be. You know the day that I'm more popular than him, I'm not doing my job." pic.twitter.com/PoAgX3q8pA

Much to the delight of the adoring crowd, Trump unloaded on Obama:
“You finally have a president who understands that I’m not supposed to be president of the world; I’m supposed to be president of the United States of America.”
“Obama is more popular in Germany than Trump. He’s got to be. I’m making people pay their bills. The day I’m more popular than him, I’m not doing my job. They like him more in Europe than they like Trump. I think they should,”
The dig at Obama not only addresses his callous disregard for the American worker through his support of globalist trade pacts that put the very nation that he led at a disadvantage but also his receipt of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 for doing nothing.
The president also touted his unprecedented achievement of wringing more money out of the chiselers that comprise NATO.
Via The Washington Examiner, “Trump dismisses comparison to Obama: ‘The day I’m more popular than him, I’m not doing my job'”:
President Trump embraced his lack of global popularity during a Monday night campaign rally in North Carolina, suggesting former President Barack Obama was well-liked because he was too easy on other world leaders.
“The day that I’m more popular than him, I’m not doing my job,” Trump said of Obama to an enthusiastic crowd on Monday.
Trump touted his perceived successes negotiating trade deals with world leaders as one possible explanation for his lack of global popularity.
“They’re not happy … Obama is more popular in Germany than Trump. He’s got to be. I’m making people pay their bills,” he said. “They like him [Obama] more in Europe than they like Trump.”
Trump also made it clear to the raucous audience at that Crown Expo Center that the stakes for next year’s election couldn’t be higher.
“You must never forget that the 2020 election is about one thing. You. It’s true. It’s not about me. It’s about you. It’s about your family, your future, and the fate of your country … A vote for any Democrat in 2020 and a vote for any Democrat tomorrow in North Carolina is a vote for the rise of radical socialism and the destruction of the American dream. We are entering this campaign with the best record, the best results, the best agenda.”
“Democrats are now the party of high taxes, high crime, open borders, late-term abortion, and socialism. They are socialists. The Republican party as the party of the American worker, the American family, and the American dream … Democrats even want to give free health care to illegal immigrants… And as long as I’m your president, I will never, ever let Democrats take away your health care and give it away free to people that have entered our country illegally. We can’t do that. It’s a tremendous incentive to come in. Democrats also want to bring in unlimited numbers of foreign refugees from overseas, all at the expense of supporting their own communities. Republicans, no matter what you do, where you are, we want people to obey our laws. We want people that are going to help our country. The Democratic Party has never been farther outside of the mainstream.”
In 2016 one of the biggest reasons that Trump was able to spring the upset against the heavily favored Hillary Clinton and the continuation of Obama’s dismal policies is that he wisely avoided the media filter by taking his message directly to the people.
And he’s just getting warmed up for 2020!
