Obama says HE is responsible for the booming economy, brands Trump a 'demagogue' who is a threat to democracy and attacks culture of 'celebrating bullies' as he pleads with Americans to vote in mid-terms

Former President Barack Obama claimed responsibility for the booming economy and launched a scathing attack on Donald Trump as a threat to democracy.

The 44th US president also branded his successor a 'demagogue' who was part of the culture of 'celebrating bullies'.

Speaking to a crowd of thousands in a school auditorium in Cleveland, Ohio, yesterday, Obama lashed out at Trump's tax cuts for 'the most wealthy and powerful' and said the policy would damage the economy in the long run.

While backing Ohio's Democratic governor nominee Richard Cordray, the former commander-in-chief claimed responsibility for the current state of the US economy and said the upturn in growth started on his watch.
