Obama has made some appearances since Trump took office - including headlining a fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee earlier this year - but the Trump era has complicated Obama's post-presidency.
Obama stated that this was not how democracy worked, saying: "And by the way the idea that everything will turn out OK because there are people inside the White House who secretly aren't following the President's orders", he said.
He said voters would have to do it for them. They're not doing us a service by actively promoting 90 percent of the insane stuff that's coming out of this White House, and then saying, 'Don't worry, we're preventing 10 percent.' That's not how things are supposed to work. "The biggest threat to our democracy is indifference".
Mourinho's brilliant gesture for 'fantastic' Man United fan
We know we are not in Manchester United's league and it's a massive challenge for clubs like ours to get close to those guys." . Speaking to ManUtd.com , Mourinho said: "The pace with the ball and the organisation without the ball [was very good]".
"I'm sorry, I watched it, but I fell asleep", he said. "I found that he's very, very good for sleeping".
Noting the history of former presidents avoiding the rough and tumble of politics, Obama acknowledged his sharp critique of Trump was something of a departure from tradition.
Up until this point, Obama has strayed away from directly attacking President Trump, but according to those with knowledge of the speech, it is expected to provide his most pointed rebuke to date of the current president.
But he dropped that political tradition in IL, the state where he launched his own political career, saying a vote against Republicans could restore "honesty and decency and lawfulness" to government.
"Some of you may think I am exaggerating when I say these November elections are more important than any in our lifetime", he said.

The top court, in four separate but concurring judgements, set aside its own verdict in the Suresh Kaushal case. But the Supreme Court overturned that ruling, saying it should be up to Parliament to amend or repeal the law .
Republicans shrugged off Obama's criticism.
The former president mocked Trump's response blaming "both sides" for the deadly violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017.
"There is no one else in the Democratic Party that is able to focus people's attention on an issue the way that he can", said Patrick Rodenbush, the communications director for the Holder group, for which Obama recently sat to shoot a promotional video.
Trump told supporters in Montana on Thursday that Republicans needed to maintain control of Congress to stave off possible impeachment proceedings against him.
"You've got to do more than retweet a hashtag, you've got to vote". "That's the only way it could happen", Trump told a Montana rally. Next week he'll be in OH to campaign for Richard Cordray and other Democrats.
