Barack Obama is a liberal icon. His administration was one of the cleanest, with nearly no blemishes, and definitely no list of indictments like Trump has. Obama’s success is what drives Trump’s hate, and his skin color literally led Trump to desert the Democrat Party for Republicans.
Obama has been speaking out more and more since the coronavirus outbreak made landfall; almost as if he knows Americans need to hear from him at this moment in history.
Obama’s tweets don’t call out Trump’s inadequacies by name, but still, we know who he speaks of when he mentions the policy fails that have led us here.
Check out what Obama tweeted Wednesday:
Despite all the time that’s been lost, we can still make real progress against the virus, protect people from the economic fallout, and more safely approach something closer to normal if we start making better policy decisions now.https://t.co/pfokyI8GiB

Despite all the time that’s been lost, we can still make real progress against the virus, protect people from the economic fallout, and more safely approach something closer to normal if we start making better policy decisions now.
According to CNN:
The delicate dynamic between Fauci and Trump has been watched for months. Its latest fraying marks the most pronounced clash yet in the tussle between science and politics that has long plagued the administration’s fight against the coronavirus.
Fauci’s transgression is to base his evaluations — after decades of public service and expertise fighting HIV/AIDS, Ebola, Zika and anthrax — on facts and logic that conflict with Trump’s chosen version of reality. Fauci has long said that only the virus can decide when normal life — things such as NFL games and schools reopening, for instance — will be safe again.
People responding to Obama on Twitter had mixed reactions about their feelings for the 44th president of the United States. You can see their reactions to Obama’s tweet below:
