Appearing on the “Pod Save America” podcast, former President Obama blasted President Trump and compared his own pandemic handling record favorably to Trump’s.
“You might not have been happy with everything I did, all my policy choices,” Obama prefaced “I didn’t eliminate poverty in America, but when we had a pandemic or the threat of pandemic, we had competent people in place who would deal with it.”
Obama also accused Trump of not behaving in front of Global leaders.
“Even our enemies can expect us to behave like adults on the international stage,” Obama said.
“Over the last four years, it’s not as if Trump has been all that active internationally. I mean, the truth is he doesn’t have the patience and the focus to really substantially change a lot of U.S. foreign policy. What he’s done is, he’s systematically tried to decimate our entire foreign policy infrastructure,” he added.
