Campaigning with Biden in Michigan Saturday, former President Barack Obama was sharply critical of Trump's comments about doctors — and incredulous that attack was part of the President's closing argument.
"He's jealous of Covid's media coverage and now he's accusing doctors of profiting off this pandemic—think about that," Obama said. "He cannot fathom, he does not understand the notion that somebody would risk their life to save others without trying to make a buck."
"If Trump were focused on Covid from the beginning, cases wouldn't be reaching new record highs across the country," Obama added, noting that some areas where Trump has held rallies have seen spikes in cases "after he leaves town" and mocking Trump's "obsession" with crowd size in the midst of a pandemic.
"You know when a country is going through a pandemic that's not what you're supposed to be worrying about," Obama said. "And that's the difference between Joe Biden and Trump right there. Trump cares about feeding his ego. Joe cares about keeping you and your family safe. And he's less interested in feeding his ego with having big crowds than he is making sure he's not going around making more and more people sick. That's what you should expect from a president."
