Obama Says He Doesn't 'Want to Live in Trump's America'
Ex-president blasts his POTUS, saying his language 'p**ses me off'
Former President Barack Obama has attacked his POTUS, declaring that he doesn't "want to live in Trump's America."
Obama has issued a strong rebuke of President Donald Trump, blasting the language he uses during his notorious MAGA/KAG rallies.
The ex-president pointed to Trump's use of the term "kung flu" while discussing the coronavirus at his recent Tulsa rally, saying the phrase "p**ses me off."
The Democrat reportedly decried the president's use of the term to his followers during an invite-only fundraiser for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in Arizona last week.
According to a report by The New York Times, Obama told voters that Trump thinks racism is "funny."
"I don't want a country in which the president of the United States is actively trying to promote anti-Asian sentiment and thinks it's funny," Obama said, the NYT reported.
"I don't want that," Obama told the audience.
"That still shocks and p**ses me off."
White House officials including Kellyanne Conway, whose husband is half Asian, defended Trump's use of the phrase after his rally last week in Tulsa, Oklahoma, according to The Sun.
Administration members claimed that the president wasn't trying to incite anti-Asian sentiment, but was merely making a point of the origins of the coronavirus, which is believed to be the Wuhan province in China.
"My reaction is that the president has made very clear that he wants everybody to understand, and I think many Americans do understand, that the virus originated in China," Conway told reporters.
Obama has been ramping up his efforts to challenge Trump's presidency in recent weeks.
As Neon Nettle previously reported, it emerged this week that Obama admitted that the nationwide unrest and Black Lives Matter protests have been a "tailor-made moment" to help Joe Biden in the coming November election.
Obama reportedly told aides that the reaction to the death of George Floyd will be key to helping Democratic presidential nominee Biden to take on President Trump.
The ex-POTUS was made anxious after riots and looting rocked many American cities in the days following Floyd’s death and Trump began trumpeting “law and order” in response, according to a New York Times report based on interviews with more than 50 Obama confidants.
"Let’s not excuse violence, or rationalize it, or participate in it,” Obama wrote in a Medium post last month.
"If we want our criminal justice system, and American society at large, to operate on a higher ethical code, then we have to model that code ourselves."
According to Obama, it seems the more riots, violence, looting and unrest, the more votes for Democrat Biden.
Obama is just the latest in a long line of anti-Trump Democrats and far-left celebrities who claim they can't bear to live in the United States under Trump's leadership.
In October, as Neon Nettle reported at the time, Chelsea Clinton blasted the U.S., declaring that America is "not the country I want [my kids] to grow up in."
Speaking during an appearance on “The View” alongside her mother, Hillary Clinton, Chelsea blasted the US under Donald Trump's leadership, while citing fabricated quotes which she falsely attributed to the president to justify her claims.
After declaring that the United States is not good enough for her children, the younger Clinton falsely claimed that "President Trump wanted to dig a ditch at the border and put alligators and snakes and shoot migrants in the leg."
