OREANDA-NEWS. Former US President Barack Obama spoke out in support of Democratic candidate for head of state Joe Biden at a rally in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for the first time during his campaign. “You guys delivered for me twice, and I am back here tonight to ask you to deliver the White House for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris,” Obama said.

According to Obama, incumbent Republican President Trump viewed holding his post as “one more reality show that he can use to get the attention he craves.” He added that, due to Trump’s fault, “our proud reputation around the world is in tatters,” and mentioned that the United States did not take effective measures against coronavirus infection.

Obama also said that as a teenager working in an ice cream shop, he may have paid more taxes than Trump. So the ex-president commented on The New York Times material that in 2016 and 2017, the current head of state paid income tax of just 1.5 thousand US dollars.
