US President Donald Trump accused his predecessor, Barack Obama, of incompetence in response to criticism of the fight against coronavirus in the country.
Former President Obama appeared at a live event for students, where he sharply criticized US officials in the fight against the pandemic. He said that people who have a severe responsibility “don’t even try to pretend that they know what they are doing.”
“Look, he was an incompetent President, that’s all I can say. Incompetent,” Trump said, speaking on the White House lawn on Sunday.
Later, Trump continued attacking Obama on Twitter.
“The Obama administration turned out to be one of the most corrupt and incompetent in US history. Remember, he and Sleepy Joe (Joe Biden, who was Obama’s Vice President) are the reasons why I’m in the White House!!!” Trump wrote.
