Former President Barack Obama took credit Monday afternoon for what he called the "economic miracles" happening under President Trump. He implied the current administration lacks honesty and lawfulness.
Obama won Nevada during his 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns. When the rest of the nation gets a cold, Las Vegas gets the flu.
Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel slammed the mainstream media for what she said was a double standard in how they're treating President Donald Trump and his predecessors in the Oval Office.
Rosen, a first-term congresswoman, is seen as one of Democrats' best opportunities to flip control of a Senate seat, though the party faces slim chances of taking control of the Senate.
Republicans in Congress "bend over backwards" instead of being 'a check or a balance on this kind of corrupt politics, ' the former president said.
He said that there was only one way to control abuses of power and that was the voters, adding that Trump's pressuring US Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to pursue political rivals is not what should be done in the US but rather is typical of some "dictatorships".

In a further sign of the state's importance in the midterms, former President Barack Obama scheduled a stop Monday in Las Vegas. Biden says America was built on basic fundamental decency and "it is being shredded right now".
PREVIOUS UPDATE (11:55 a.m.): Former President Barack Obama is set to rally in Las Vegas with Democratic candidate for Senate Jacky Rosen and other Nevada Democrats.
"I never knew if I was 100 percent Democrat before, but I feel that I know what I'm definitely not", she added. Organizers also brought in actress America Ferrera, musician J Balvin, and singers Salt-N-Pepa to fire up the crowd before Obama took the stage.
Trump, meanwhile, tweeted on Monday without offering evidence that "criminals and unknown Middle Easterners" were part of a migrant caravan of thousands of people headed toward the United States from Central America.
The American Mirror also reported on Obama's speech with an article entitled: "I GOT A LOT TO SAY": Obama refers to himself 92 times during 38-minute NV speech.
The caravan, at least 1,000 miles away, comes on the heels of a surge in apprehensions of families at the border, which has rankled Trump but has also given him a fresh talking point to rally his base ahead of the midterm elections just two weeks away.
