Barack Obama’s scathing attack on Donald Trump’s presidency in fiery DNC speech


Former Democratic U.S. president, Barack Obama in a recent virtual convention unleashed a scathing attack on Donald Trump’s presidency, warning Americans to consider whom they vote as the nation grapples poll in November.

This is not the usual statement the always prim, proper, and exceptionally articulate Obama can be heard giving. But nonetheless, other than a biased or apolitical hearer, no one could disagree with what he said.

In his fiery speech at the virtual Democratic National Convention, Obama said how at the helm of power in the world’s most formidable nation, President Donald Trump has only managed to use his presidency as a ‘reality show’ to garner the attention he craves.

“For close to 4-years now, he has shown no interest in putting in the work, no interest in finding common ground, no interest in using the awesome power of the office to help anyone but himself and his friends,” Obama said in the virtual address in Philadelphia.

“I never expected that my successor would embrace my vision, or continue my policy; I did hope, for the sake of our country, that Donald Trump might show some interest in taking the job seriously.”

“And he might come to feel the weight of the office, and discover some reverence for the democracy that has been placed in his care,” Obama said, in his striking and clear oration he is known for.

Obama, who’s a private citizen now, was the 44th US president and the last Democratic leader to take the helm of America. He has been a critique of Trump’s presidency, but never to an extent, Trump attacked him all throughout his time in the office.

Barack Obama, as CNN noted, has no formal power to address the people in the way he did. But his historic tenure at the Oval Office or two terms at the White House gives him the moral weight to address the masses.

.@JoeBiden made me a better president. I’m asking you to believe in his and Kamala’s ability to help make us a better country. More importantly, I’m asking you to believe in your own and to help them, in this election and beyond.

Barrack Obama’s scathing attack on Donald Trump’s presidency in fiery DNC speech

Barack Obama is one of the victims of Trump’s baseless attacks which CNN says are in ways never seen by any American presidential successors.

“No interest in treating the presidency as anything but one more reality show to get the attention he craves,” Obama can be heard saying.

“Do not let them take away your power. Don’t let them take away your democracy,” he added.

Obama said Americans must hope for a president who is a “custodian of democracy” and “should expect (the President) that regardless of ego, ambition, or political police, the president will preserve, protect and defend the freedoms and ideals that so many Americans marched for, went to jail for, fought for and died for.”

“Make a plan right now for how you’re going to get involved and vote. Do it as early as you can and tell your family and friends how they can vote too,” he said, adding “What we do echoes through the generations.”

Obama’s comments come amid growing criticism of Trump’s handling of the pandemic. Over 170,000 people have died from the virus, yet Trump does not hold back from self-appraisals over his administration’s COVID-19 response.

From ‘joking’ to inject disinfectants in the bodies to treat COVID-19 till supporting the pettiest of conspiracy theories regarding the noel coronavirus outbreak, Trump from the great office of the White House has sadly participated in all.

The list of Trump’s racist and hatemongering tweets will probably take a whole post to cover. And meanwhile, Obama’s speech was going viral on the internet, Trump was hate-tweeting in all-caps, shooting false and misinterpreted allegations on the former President.

Kamala Harris, the Democratic nominee for the ticket to Vice Presidency made history after she formally accepted her nomination from the party. Harris, if becomes a vice President will the first woman of color with Indian American and Jamaican origin to hold the office.

Donald Trump and his vice President faces Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on november. In the meantime, Americans can decide the fate of their great country.
