WASHINGTON, (BM) – Former US President Barack Obama sharply criticized the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus crisis, calling it an “absolutely chaotic disaster,” CNN reports, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.
Such a statement, as noted in the article, he made during a private telephone conversation with people who worked with him in the White House.
This tough comment, validated by three former Obama administration officials, has so far been his harshest assessment of how President Trump and his team are dealing with a deadly pandemic.
In a half-hour conversation with his former subordinates, the former US president noted that Washington’s reaction to the outbreak of coronavirus was an important reminder of why the government needed strong leadership during global crises. Thus, as CNN emphasizes, Obama tried to convince former members of his team to participate more actively in the election campaign of US presidential candidate Democrats Joe Biden.
“The upcoming elections are extremely important at all levels, since we will not fight with a specific person or political party. We are fighting against long-term trends in which selfishness, belonging to a particular group, split and attitude towards others as enemies became a more powerful impulse in American life,” Obama said.
Meanwhile, White House spokeswoman Kaylee Mackenani responded to Obama’s statement, saying, “President Trump’s response to coronavirus was unprecedented and saved the lives of Americans.”
