With less than two weeks before the polls close, Mr. Obama had his first campaign in person for his former vice president stopped.
Addressing a drive-through rally in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – a key state for Republicans and Democrats – the former Commander-in-Chief spent much of his time criticizing his successor in the Oval Office.
He said: ” Donald Trump suddenly won’t protect us all.
“He can’t even take the basic steps to protect himself. ”
The former president added, “America is a good and decent place, but we’ve just seen so much nonsense and noise that it’s sometimes hard to remember. ”
He also said that President Trump was “unable to take his job seriously” and that he “wants full credit for the economy he inherited and no blame for the pandemic he ignored.”
Speaking at a rally in North Carolina, the current US leader criticized Mr. Obama for his support for Hillary Clinton in 2016.
He said, “It’s no one who campaigned harder for Crooked Hillary than Obama, right?” ”
North Carolina is another state on the battlefield that Mr. Trump and Mr. Biden are fighting hard to win.
The incumbent argued on Wednesday that Democrats and the media were obsessed with the coronavirus pandemic.
He said, “All you hear is COVID, COVID.
“That’s all they put on because they want to scare everyone. ”
Back in Philadelphia, Barack Obama encouraged people to come out and vote.
“I ask you to remember what this country can be like,” he said. “I ask you to believe in Joe’s and Kamala’s ability to lead this country out of these dark times and help us to rebuild it better.” ”
He continued, “What we do for the next 13 days will matter for decades to come.
“The fact that we don’t get 100% of what we want right away is not a good reason not to vote. ”
Addressing the horns of support at the drive-in rally, the former president said: “We must vote like never before and leave no doubt. ”
Watch and follow the final presidential debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden at 2 a.m. Friday morning on the Sky News website, in the app and on TV.
