During a Friday rally in Miami,, President Donald Trump asked the crowd, “Why is it that the folks that won the last election are so mad all the time?”
Over the cheers and laughter in response, Obama continued, “It’s an interesting question. I mean, when I won the presidency, at least my side felt pretty good. I don’t know why — it tells you something interesting, that even the folks who are in charge are still mad because they’re getting ginned up to be mad.”

Obama was one of the influential Democrats who received one of the explosive devices allegedly mailed by Cesar Sayoc, an avid Trump Supporter.
Additional addressees of the at least 14 packages authorities intercepted included former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Eric Holder, former Vice President Joe Biden, California Sen. Kamala Harris, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker and California Rep. Maxine Waters.
None of the bombs ever detonated and no one was injured. Law enforcement officials said Sayoc had a list of more than 100 influential progressive figures whom he intended to target.
Obama has been campaigning around the country on behalf of Democrats in recent weeks, often calling out the right’s rhetoric. While campaigning for Democrats in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Oct. 26, the father of two took a jab at the Trump administration and its number of indictments.
“They promised to take on corruption… remember that?” Obama said in a clip obtained by CNN. “They have gone to Washington and just plundered away.”
He added, “In Washington, they have racked enough indictments to field a football team. Nobody in my administration got indicted. So, how is it that they’ve cleaned things up?”
