Sylvie Claire / August 20, 2020
With a serious face, Barack Obama delivered, 75 days before the election, a severe indictment against the Republican billionaire who succeeded him at the White House on January 20, 2017.
Beyond the speech of the 44th president, much anticipated, the Democratic national convention will also welcome Senator Kamala Harris, running mate of Joe Biden, who will wear the Democratic colors on November 3.
I hoped, for the good of our country, that Donald Trump could show the desire to take his role seriously, that he could feel the weight of the office, affirmed Mr. Obama, clearly younger than the two. candidates in the running but already retired from politics. But he never did, added Obama, the third ex-president to back Joe Biden at the convention after Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter.
The consequences of this failure are serious: 170,000 Americans dead, millions of jobs lost, our worst instincts released, he added from Philadelphia, accusing his successor of using the presidency as a reality TV show. .
During Barack Obama's speech, Donald Trump made many angry tweets, in capital letters, accusing his predecessor in particular of having spied on him during his campaign.
A few hours earlier, after the broadcast of excerpts from the speech, he had already responded forcefully. "When I hear that and see the horror he left us, the stupidity of the deals he made…" he replied. "Look how bad he was, how ineffective he was." The tenant of the White House also joked about "Hillary the scoundrel", mocking nickname he gives to Mrs. Clinton, even before the broadcast of his speech.
The hapless ex-candidate, who failed to become the first president of the United States four years ago, also spoke at the bizarre convention without an audience.
For four years, people have been telling me 'I did not realize how dangerous he was' (...) or worse 'I should have voted' ”, she declared, calling for a start to avoid the following day. of the election are, once again, those of disappointment and regret.
Opposite, Donald Trump continues to play the effect of contrast with the one he nicknames "Sleepy Joe" by increasing the number of trips, from Wisconsin to Arizona.
Mr Biden's erasure, the scarcity of his exits from his home, and the fact that he does not hold press conferences have become one of the Republicans' main arguments in an attempt to weaken this politician grumpy which is at the top of the polls.
The Democratic High Mass, held this year completely online due to Covid-19, is expected to ramp up until the final speech Thursday by Joe Biden, 77
