Obama: US response on COVID-19 a ‘chaotic disaster’
Former US President Barack Obama, in a private conference call, criticized US President Donald Trump’s response on the coronavirus pandemic, calling it an “absolute chaotic disaster.”
Additionally, Obama also criticized the decision to drop the criminal charges against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn by the Justice Department, worrying that the “basic understanding of rule of law is at risk.”
The situation of the coronavirus pandemic in the US has recorded a whopping 1.2 million confirmed cases of the virus, and more than 77,000 deaths.
On the other hand, President Trump has consistently defended and boasted his government’s response to the virus.
“I think we saved millions of lives,” US President Trump said earlier this week,
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany also added, “President Trump’s coronavirus response has been unprecedented and saved American lives.”
“While Democrats encouraged mass gatherings, President Trump was deploying PPE, ventilators, and testing across the country,” McEnany said.
