Barack Obama hits out at Donald Trump’s handling of COVID-19

American President Donald Trump has been harshly criticized by the former American president Barack Obama during a conversation with ex-members of his administration, on handling the Coronavirus pandemic as an “absolute chaotic disaster.” Barack Obama also reacted on the Justice Department dropping its criminal case against Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, saying he is worried that the “basic understanding of rule of law is at risk.”

According to  latest estimates from the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. In United States of America more than 1.3 million people have tested positive for Coronavirus and around 78,400 people have died with Covid-19.

Barack Obama said “What we’re fighting against is these long-term trends in which being selfish, being tribal, being divided, and seeing others as an enemy — that has become a stronger impulse in American life. And by the way, we’re seeing that internationally as well. It’s part of the reason why the response to this global crisis has been so anaemic and spotty,”

On defending his response on Coronavirus pandemic Trump says that travel restrictions from China and Europe as well as social distancing guidelines have prevented far greater damage and also criticized the Obama administration in relation to his own administration’s response to the outbreak.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany says “President Trump’s coronavirus response has been unprecedented and saved American lives,” she also added “While Democrats encouraged mass gatherings; president Trump was deploying PPE, ventilators, and testing across the country.”
