At an event in Miami Florida, former U.S. President Barack Obama scoffed at President Donald Trump for walking out of a ’60 Minutes’ interview.
Former President Barack Obama lit into President Trump during a drive-in rally at the Florida International University campus in support of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Saturday.
With hundreds of cars honking, Obama tore into Trump from the start. The former president said the current occupant in the White House has shown little interest in taking his job seriously and that he “treats the presidency like a reality show.”
Trump “hasn’t shown any interest in doing the work or helping anybody except himself and his friends or treating the presidency like a reality show to give himself more attention. And as we noted the other day, his TV ratings are down,” Obama said.
Obama added, “The rest of us have to live with the consequences of what he’s done.”
The former president went on to speak about those consequences as it relates to Trump’s bungling of the pandemic response. And he encouraged Floridians to make Trump a one-term president.
“At least 220,000 Americans are dead. More than 100,000 small businesses have closed. Half a million jobs are gone. Half a million jobs are gone. Right here in Florida. Half a million jobs,” Obama said. “You delivered twice for me, Florida, and now I’m asking you to deliver for Joe and for Kamala [Harris].”
