At a press conference at the G20 in Turkey, President Obama made it clear who is real enemies are after he called out some Republicans as “shameful” and “not American” for their position on the acceptance of Syrian refugees.
Obama continued in that vein in Malaysia yesterday, warning an audience in that country to avoid a political process like America’s:

Obama, however, warned the leaders about such American weaknesses as racial divides, income inequality, harsh partisanship and a political system dominated by the wealthy.
“Right now, our political system does not work as well as it should,” Obama said. “And what I would say to young leaders, what sort of pitfalls should you avoid, I would say, number one, it is very important to avoid any political system where money overwhelms ideas. And the United States politics process has become so expensive and it lasts so long, and even though I was successful at it, we spend hundreds of millions of dollars in television advertising and in all the things that go into a U.S. presidential campaign.”
Obama went on to spell out what’s wrong with America’s political process in greater detail.

We've had some awful presidents over the years, but I don't think any of them before now have hated America https://t.co/QfWCuglGaq

Wouldn't it be great to have a Pres. that actually loves their country. Hell, I'll settle for LIKES at this point. https://t.co/bnyexR6TXO
