OREANDA-NEWS. Former US President Barack Obama blames incumbent head of state Donald Trump for the death of 170 thousand Americans from the coronavirus infection.

“Donald Trump hasn’t grown into the job because he can’t. And the consequences of that failure are severe: 170,000 Americans dead. Millions of jobs gone. Our worst impulses unleashed, our proud reputation around the world badly diminished, and our democratic institutions threatened like never before,” the published theses of Obama’s speech, with which he plans to speak at the convention of the Democratic Party, reads.

Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi also criticized Trump. “As speaker of the House, I’ve seen firsthand Donald Trump’s disrespect for facts, for working families, and for women in particular – disrespect written into his policies toward health and our rights, not just his conduct,” her speech’s theses say.
