Another Obama lecture on what is populism: Doesn’t like Trump being called a populist

The bottom line that you need to take away from Obama’s rant is that he can’t challenge the substance of what Donald Trump has to say.
  So what Obama does as is typical of Liberals is call Trump names to distract the voters.  Libs never refute an argument point by point.  What they do is some form or fashion is call an opponent a racist, sexist, or homophobe.  That’s all they do and Obama isn’t any different.  
CBS News reports President Obama went off on his own rant Wednesday at a trilateral press conference in which he disputed the idea that Donald Trump is a populist and that the presumptive GOP nominee instead promotes "nativism" or "xenophobia."

After reporters asked a series of questions of Mr. Obama, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Mr. Obama decided he had something else to say in Ottawa -- he addressed the common theme of populism raised during the event

"I'm not prepared to concede the notion that some of the rhetoric that's been popping up is populist," Mr. Obama said, referring to Trump.

He said the reason why he ran for president in 2008, again in 2012, and why he will continue to work in some capacity in public service after he leaves office next year is because he cares about people and making sure every child has the same opportunities as he had.

The president said he cares about poor people, about workers having a collective voice in the workplace, about kids getting an education and ensuring that the U.S. has a fair tax system.

"I suppose that makes me a populist," Mr. Obama said.
