Obama Slams Trump's View of America

Hosted by

President Obama said today he didn't have time to watch the Republican convention, but he did have a response to Donald Trump's dark and stormy vision of contemporary America. Challenging Trump's assertion that the US is on the verge of collapse, the President emphasized, "We're not gonna make good decisions based on fears that don't have a basis in fact and that  I think that is something, I hope, all Americans pay attention to."

Nahal Toosi, who covers foreign affairs and politics for Politico, has more on the President's remarks.
