Trump: If Obama and Biden Did A Good Job, I Wouldn't Be Here

|

President Donald Trump reacted to excerpts from what will be former President Barack Obama's speech to the DNC. Trump said at a press conference on Wednesday if former President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden did a good job then he wouldn't be president or would have even run for the office.

"President Obama did not do a good job," And the reason I'm here is because of President Obama and Joe Biden. Because if they did a good job, I wouldn't be here. And probably, if they did a good job, I wouldn't have even run; I would have been very happy. I enjoyed my previous life very much, but they did such a bad job that I stand before you as President.


REPORTER: Mr. President, excerpts from Obama's speech that he'll give later at the Democratic Convention show that he will -- he says that he hoped that you would take being President more "seriously" once you have the job and "discover...reverence for democracy." And then he said, I quote, "But he never did." What is your reaction to that?

TRUMP: You know, when I listen to that and then I see the horror that he's left us, the stupidity of the transactions that he made. Look what we're doing: We have our great border wall. We have security. We have the UAE deal, which has been universally praised -- praised by people that aren't exactly fans of Donald Trump for various reasons. I don't know why; can't be my personality. But they're not fans. Right?

And when I look at what we have -- now, look at how bad he was, how ineffective a President he was. He was so ineffective, so terrible. Slowest-growing recovery in the history -- I guess, since 1929 -- on the economy.

Don't forget, until the China virus came in, we had the greatest economy in the history of the world. And now we're doing it again. I'm going to have to do it a second time. We're doing it again -- hard to believe.

We're doing very well. You heard the numbers; they're way, way down on the -- on the virus.

But when you look at the kind of numbers that we're producing on the stock markets, we're almost at the level -- in fact, NASDAQ and S&P are higher than they were at their highest point prior to the China virus coming in -- the plague coming in.

No, President Obama did not do a good job. And the reason I'm here is because of President Obama and Joe Biden. Because if they did a good job, I wouldn't be here. And probably, if they did a good job, I wouldn't have even run; I would have been very happy. I enjoyed my previous life very much, but they did such a bad job that I stand before you as President.
