During his speech, Obama criticized Trump's campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again," by saying that “America is already great” and accusing Trump of having a "deeply pessimistic vision" of the country.
“I promise you, our strength, our greatness, does not depend on Donald Trump,” Obama said.
“Our power doesn’t come from some self-declared savior promising that he alone can restore order. We don’t look to be ruled,” he added.
