Obama slams US President at Democratic National Convention

Vastavam web: In his most blistering attack on Donald Trump, former president Barack Obama has accused his successor of treating the presidency like a “reality show” and said the top Republican leader hasn’t grown into the job because he can’t. Obama, the country’s first Black president, spoke on the third night of the virtual Democratic National Convention on Wednesday just before Senator Kamala Harris of California became the first Black person to be formally nominated for vice-president by a major party.

Obama said that both Biden and Harris have the experience needed to get things done and they have concrete policies that will turn their vision of a better, fairer, stronger country into reality. But he had some very harsh words for President Trump who is seeking re-election in the November 3 presidential polls. I have sat in the Oval Office with both of the men who are running for president. I never expected that my successor would embrace my vision or continue my policies,” Obama said. Obama said that he had hoped that Trump might show some interest in taking the job seriously But he never did”.

“Donald Trump hasn’t grown into the job because he can’t, Obama said, giving his address from Philadelphia, where the US Constitution was drafted and signed. Obama said the consequences of Trump’s failure as President have been severe with more 170,000 Americans died due to the coronavirus and loss of millions of jobs while those at the top have raked in more wealth.
