The former US President said that the current head of state “is not even able to take measures for his own protection.”
Former US President Barack Obama blamed incumbent US leader Donald Trump for record-high infection rates with the new coronavirus in the United States. He made the corresponding statement, speaking in Florida at a rally in support of the democratic candidate in the upcoming presidential election, Joseph Biden.
“The pandemic has been going on for eight months, and the US is experiencing record infection rates,” Obama said. Earlier on Saturday, it became known that the largest number of recorded cases of coronavirus infection over the past day in the United States since the beginning of the pandemic was recorded. In 24 hours, the presence of infection was detected in 83,757 people.
“Don’t expect Donald Trump to start protecting us suddenly. He is not even able to take measures for his own protection,” the former American leader continued, stressing that Trump also “does not recognize the existence of problems.” “As recently as this week, he complained that he had to go back to work because of the pandemic,” Obama said. “But if he [Trump] had worked from the very beginning, things would be much better now.”
In April, Obama officially announced his support for Biden, who served as Vice President in his administration. Then he posted a video message on Twitter. Later, he did this more than once. Last Wednesday, he spoke in person for the first time at a rally in support of a Democrat.
