Trump Rages at Obama for Supporting Biden: I Wouldn’t Even Be President if Not for Him

President Donald Trump attacked former President Barack Obama on Thursday as the Democrat begins a concerted effort to get his former Vice President, Joe Biden, elected. The Biden campaign released videos of the two in conversation, sometimes criticizing Trump.

“Obama, who wouldn’t even endorse Biden until everyone else was out of the primaries (and even then waited a long time!), is now making a commercial of support,” Trump tweeted.

“Remember, I wouldn’t even be here if it weren’t for them. I wouldn’t be President. They did a terrible job!”

Obama didn’t endorse any candidate during the Democratic primaries and though the President’s allies in the media insinuate that this was bad news for Biden, it’s normal for former presidents not to weigh in during the primary process.

Trump may have been riled by a recent video snippet showing Biden and Obama discussing his response to Coronavirus.

“Can you imagine standing up when you were president and saying ‘it’s not my responsibility. I take no responsibility. Literally. Literally,” Biden said.

“Those words didn’t come out of our mouths when we were in office,” Obama responded.
