Trump calls Obama 'an incompetent president' after Obama's televised national graduation speech

Trump calls Obama 'an incompetent president' after Obama's televised national graduation speech”

The US president was responding to a question on the virtual commencement address by Obama a day earlier.

Obama also said, "More than anything, this pandemic has fully, finally torn back the curtain on the idea that so numerous folks in charge know what they're doing".

"A lot of them aren't even pretending to be in charge", he said, as he discussed the implications of the pandemic during the online event, without naming any specific leaders.

At the televised "Graduate Together: America Honors the High School Class of 2020" event Saturday hosted by National Basketball Association star LeBron James, Obama accused Trump of thinking like a little kid and being a so-called grown-up - without naming names but with everyone knowing who Obama was referring to.

Bush senior adviser Karl Rove accused Barack Obama-the nation's first black president-of committing a "political drive-by shooting" on Monday for subtly criticizing President Donald Trump's coronavirus response in a commencement speech for historically black colleges. It was Obama's most public and harshest criticism of Trump's and his administration's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic to date. "A lot of very good things have happened". A reporter asked about Trump suggesting publicly in recent weeks that top officials in the Obama administration, including the former president, had committed crimes. That's all I can say.

Trump left the White House for Camp David, the presidential retreat in the Maryland mountains, on Friday.

"The first person I would call to testify about the biggest political crime and scandal in the history of the United States of America, by FAR, is former President Obama", Trump tweeted.

Whether or not those were references to Trump, Trump evidently took them as such - although he claimed hadn't seen Obama's comments, widely repeated on TV and Twitter. The US now accounts for the world's highest number of cases and deaths at 1,486,515 and 89,562, respectively, according to the Johns Hopkins University.
