Leaked DNC emails reveal the inner workings of the party’s finance operation
President Obama said the message from the Republican National Convention that the country is falling apart isn't true, and said some of the fears that were expressed throughout the week don't just jibe with the facts. This idea that American is on the verge of collapse — this vision of violence and chaos everywhere — doesn't really jibe with the experience of most people, Obama said at a press conference with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto at his side. I hope most people walked outside [this morning] and the birds were chirping and the sun was out ... and folks were going to work and getting ready for the weekend. While Obama said he didn't watch the convention, he said he has read about what was said there. He rejected the GOP themes that the country is less safe and that the border is out of control. Obama argued that the violent crime rate in America has been lower during his presidency than any time in the last three or four decades.
