Trump (sort of) thanks Biden, Obama for giving him the job

Trump (sort of) thanks Biden, Obama for giving him the job
US President Donald Trump is again trolling the world from his perch on Twitter, claiming former president Barack Obama and his running mate Joe Biden are the reason he got the job as president.

“The Media (Fake News) is pushing Sleepy Joe hard,” the president tweeted, using his self-coined nickname for 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and former vice president Joe Biden. “Funny, I’m only here because of Biden & Obama. They didn’t do the job and now you have Trump, who is getting it done – big time!”

Trump on Sunday claimed that the Democratic National Committee would attempt to “destroy Crazy Bernie Sanders,” in favor of a “more traditional, but not very bright, Sleepy Joe Biden,” seemingly hoping to widen divisions within the Democratic Party. The president has repeatedly honed in on the theme of a rigged Democratic primary.

Biden, who announced his campaign last week while saying that giving Trump “eight years in the White House… will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation” has already raked in over $6 million, putting him at the front of the line for day-one donations. The Bernie Sanders campaign hasn’t lagged in fundraising either, however, now approaching the $20 million mark for overall funds raised.

President Trump has in recent weeks mocked the former VP relentlessly, including before Biden’s first campaign rally in Pennsylvania, his home state. Biden hit back by starting his presidential campaign with a video blasting Trump’s Charlottesville comments from 2017, despite them having been dissected many times over.
