Trump: ‘Obama/Biden Administration Most Corrupt in History of Our Country’
President speaks out following new reports of Biden family corruption
President Donald Trump slammed his predecessors in the White House Monday, accusing the previous administration, led by former President Barack Obama and ex-Vice President Joe Biden, of being the "most corrupt" in America's history.
In a serious of tweets, President Trump took aim at "The Fake News Media and their partner, the Democrat Party" over their claims about the spread of coronavirus in the United States.
The president blasted the Democrats and media for trying "to inflame the CoronaVirus situation, far beyond what the facts would warrant."
Trump appeared to be responding to criticisms from liberal news outlets of his administration's handling of the initial outbreak of the coronavirus.

Reports from anti-Trump outlets, including by The Atlantic, The Washington Post, and NBC News, have painted a portrait of a White House in an enhanced state of chaos.
Shortly after, Presdient Trump focused his attention on the "Obama/Biden Administration," tweeting:
"The Obama/Biden Administration is the most corrupt Administration in the history of our Country!"

While the president didn't cite a specific reason for his allegation, his blast came shortly after new reports of alleged Biden family corruption.
According to a bombshell report in Politico, Joe Biden's younger brother James is facing fraud charges for allegedly using his family ties to the White House to enrich himself while his brother was vice president.
The report states that James Biden used his access to the Obama Administration to advance his own business interests while Joe was VP.
The report alleges that James traded on his brother’s name while doing business with medical companies – including Americore Health – and potentially engaged in fraud.
James is accused of claiming Joe Biden was interested in the venture and promising their family name could provide unprecedented business opportunities.
“It was all smoke and mirrors,” Tom Pritchard, former Americore Health executive, told Politico.
James Biden reportedly convinced Americore that he could use his political clout to deliver a significant influx of cash in the form of an investment from the Middle East.
He is even accused of convincing the company to take on financial burdens including a six-figure loan to James that he has yet to repay.
