US President Barack Obama has vehemently rejected Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s gloomy description of America as a nation facing deep crisis.
In a press conference on Friday, Obama spoke out against Trump’s rhetoric in the Republican National Convention, saying, the New York businessman is playing on American people’s fears that have no basis in reality.
"This idea that America is somehow on the verge of collapse, this vision of violence and chaos everywhere, doesn't really jive with the experience of most people," Obama said.
“America is much less violent than it was 20, 30 years ago and immigration is much less of a problem, not just 20 or 30 years ago but when I came in,” he added.

Obama made the remarks a day after Trump at the Republican convention in Cleveland, Ohio, trained harsh criticism on the Democratic Party and its nominee Hillary Clinton in particular, saying, many of the afflictions the US is now facing are due to policies implemented by Clinton and her powerful contemporaries.
“The problems we face now — poverty and violence at home, war and destruction abroad — will last only as long as we continue relying on the same politicians who created them,” Trump said.
“America is far less safe — and the world is far less stable — than when Obama made the decision to put Hillary Clinton in charge of America’s foreign policy. I am certain it is a decision he truly regrets,” he added.
“This is the legacy of Hillary Clinton: death, destruction and weakness. But Hillary Clinton’s legacy does not have to be America’s legacy,” Trump continued.
Clinton's campaign has already dismissed the real estate mogul's comments in a statement, saying, he has depicted "a dark picture of an America in decline", adding that, this is a reminder that Trump "is temperamentally unfit and totally unqualified to be president of the United States."
The statement further noted that the Republican nominee is not offering any real solutions but rather more prejudice and paranoia.
Trump, if elected, has vowed to put an end to the crises America is currently struggling with and to restore peace and safety.
I have a message for all of you: The crime and violence that today afflicts our nation will soon come to an end. Beginning on January 20, 2017, safety will be restored, he said.
