A former president claimed the current administration has failed to take control of the deadly Asian disease.
Former President Barack Obama has accused the Trump administration of not taking responsibility for the national response to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Virus pandemic. “More than anything, this pandemic has fully, finally torn back the curtain on the idea that so many of the folks in charge know what they are doing,” he said in a video shared on Twitter.
The former president alleged his successor and his secretaries had shown weak leadership during the CCP Virus crisis.
“A lot of them are not even pretending to be in charge,” he said.
The remarks came in what was promised to be a motivational speech for students who were graduating from historically black colleges and universities.
Obama did not state what the Trump administration should have done, rather he suggested the students should find their own solution to help the nation recover from the pandemic.
“If the world is going to get better it is going to be up to you,” he said. “This is your time to seize the initiative. Nobody can tell you anymore that you should be waiting your turn, nobody can tell you anymore this is how it has always been done.”
He encouraged the students to take action without hesitation or carefully considering the potential negative ramifications of any proposed social change.
“More than ever this is your moment, your generation’s world to shape,” he said. “In taking on this responsibility I hope you are bold. I hope you have a vision that is not clouded by cynicism or fear.”
Obama even promised he and former First Lady Michelle Obama would both support the students behind the scenes and eagerly awaited the results.
“As you set out to change the world, we will be the wind at your back,” he said on Twitter. “[I] cannot wait to see what you achieve.”
President Donald Trump dismissed his predecessor’s criticism and suggested the previous Obama administration had its share of controversy too.
“The Obama administration is turning out to be one of the most corrupt and incompetent in U.S. history,” he said on Twitter. “Remember, he and ‘sleepy Joe’ are the reasons I am in the White House.”
The incumbent revealed the national response to the CCP Virus has been better than expected.
“We have done a great job on COVID [CCP Virus] response, making all governors look good, some fantastic (and that is okay) but the ‘lame stream media’ does not want to go with that narrative,” he said on Twitter. “The do-nothing Dems talking point is to say only bad about ‘Trump.’ I made everybody look good but me.”
