Obama also rebuked a brand of politics he said is steeped in fear and division.
Mr Obama also poked fun on the issue the current president frequently heralds as one of his greatest achievements - the strong economy.
And in a message Obama is expected to repeat on Saturday, Obama stressed the importance of voting and told the young people their vote was the "antidote" to what ails Washington.

President Donald Trump has been a busy boy today, calling on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate the author of this week's op-ed assuring Americans there is resistance inside the Trump administration. And we sure as heck are supposed to stand up clearly and unequivocally to Nazi sympathizers. "That's on the ballot".
Obama seemed to agree, saying: "The stakes really are higher". But more significantly, he urged Americans to vote for Democrats in November as a check on the Trump administration's "abuses of power".

Longtime Democratic consultant Bob Shrum said last night Obama's speech was a direct hit. "We are going to go out, and we are going to start taking some clipboards out, and we're going to start knocking on some doors".
Democrats are hoping to ride an anti-Trump "blue wave" to take control of the House of Representatives, and are also battling for seats in the Senate.
"The claim that everything will turn out OK because there are people inside the White House who secretly aren't following the president's orders, that is not a check", Mr Obama said. "We needed to see his face".
