Former POTUS Barack Obama had an offensive speech against Trump during a Saturday rally in Florida.
“His TV ratings are down,” Obama said in his campaign event for Biden at Florida International University before mocking his handling of the pandemic.
“You think he’s hard at work coming up with a plan to get us out of this mess? Well, I don’t know, because I know he’s had a tough week. Everybody’s been very unfair to Donald Trump this week,” he said.
Obama stressed that eight months into the pandemic, the country continues to break records in daily new COVID cases.
“Donald Trump isn’t going to suddenly protect all of us. He can’t even take the basic steps to protect himself.”
Moving to Trump’s leaving “60 Minutes interview” with Lesley Stahl, Obama said: “He thought the questions were too tough. Too tough? Miami, listen if he can’t answer a tough question like ‘what would you like to do in a second term,’ then it’s our job to make sure he doesn’t get a second term.”
The former President’s attacks prompted Trump to reply on Twitter: “Nobody is showing up for Obama’s hate laced speeches. 47 people! No energy, but still better than Joe!”
“Obama is campaigning for us. Every time he speaks, people come over to our side. He didn’t even want to endorse Sleepy Joe. Did so long after primaries were over!”
