Former President Barack Obama denounced President Donald Trump for his “shambolic, disorganized, mean-spirited approach to governance” during a fundraiser event with former Vice President Joe Biden. Obama endorsed Biden in April after Sen. Bernie Sanders withdrew from the Democratic presidential race. The pair had their first joint appearance during the virtual grassroots fundraiser.
Obama spoke of the urgency of advocating for broader systemic change during a period of heightened tensions over racial injustice and police brutality.
He also spoke at a virtual grassroots fundraiser with his vice president, Joe Biden, in their first joint appearance for Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign. Obama formally endorsed Biden back in April following Sen.Bernie Sander withdraws from the race as mentioned earlier, this was the reason behind her withdrawal.
Barack continued to deplore Trump for downplaying the threat of the Novel Coronavirus. He went on to accuse Trump of promoting division and considering that few Americans in the country are more realistic than other Americans.
Responding to that on Tuesday at a campaign rally in Phoenix, Trump nudged at Obama for unsuccessfully campaigning for Hillary Clinton in 2016. Trump said that he got elected as President because of the former President Obama and the job Obama did and also because of lazy Joe Biden and the job Biden didn’t do.
At the fundraiser, Obama insisted Americans to vote for Biden by saying that the “help” is on the way if the Americans do the “work”, also he said that he never trusted anyone more than Joe Biden to “heal” the country and get it back on track.
On the virtual fundraiser, Biden made an announcement that the joint effort between him and Obama made about $7.6 million from 175,000 donors, making this the highest-grossing event for the campaigns so far
