In a speech at the University of Illinois in Urbana, where he received an award for ethics in government, former President Obama spoke about the political resentments in the country. He said that "progress doesn't just move in a straight line," warning that "each time we've gotten closer to our ideals, someone somewhere pushes back." He accused President Trump of capitalizing on people's resentments amid a time of global change and upheaval, but said that "it did not start with Donald Trump. He is a symptom, not the cause." close
