President Trump, on his Twitter handle said: “compare that to the Obama/Sleepy Joe disaster known as H1N1 Swine Flu. Poor marks, bad polls – didn’t have a clue!”
In a video chat with supporters on Friday, Obama had criticized Trump’s handling of the coronavirus, saying: “it has been an absolute chaotic disaster.”
He added: “when that mindset of ‘what’s in it for me’ and ‘to heck with everybody else’ — when that mindset is operationalized in our government.”
