  • Twitter reacts to Donald Trump's post calling the Obama administration the most corrupt
  • Donald Trump wrongfully blamed Barack Obama for coronavirus testing problems

Donald Trump was accused of being jealous of Barack Obama after calling the former administration the "most corrupt."

The president of the United States once again attacked the Obama administration. In one of his tweets on Monday, the POTUS wrote a short but controversial review of the former president’s administration.

“The Obama/Biden Administration is the most corrupt Administration in the history of our Country!” Trump wrote.

However, not everyone agreed with Trump. Several reacted with dismay to what Trump posted on Twitter. Many even accused him of writing it because he was jealous of Obama.

“Imagine being this jealous of the Obama/administration. But here we are,” @AngelaBelcamino commented.

“You're projecting again. You might want to tuck that back in. It's going to be a loooong day,” @dvillella added.

“Projection Don at it again,” David Weissman, a former Trump supporter, wrote.

“When you project like this, it tells me you fear Biden,” Weissman added.

This isn’t the first time Trump was accused of being jealous of Obama.  Journalist Keith Boykin also told CNN that the president was envious of the ex-POTUS because he has been attacking Obama when the latter became the president up to the time when Trump took over the highest position in the country.

“It seems to be a projection of his values about himself that he puts on somebody else. It’s almost as if his entire presence is animated by this opposition to Barack Obama,” Boykin said.

“He spent eight years lying about Obama and everything from his birth certificate to his form policy and he gets an office and does exactly the same thing he complains about Obama.”

Just recently, Trump also wrongfully blamed Obama when the current administration faced problems while testing for coronavirus. The POTUS said that Obama regulated the abilities of state laboratories, universities and private companies to conduct screenings not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

However, according to Sen. Lamar Alexander’s aide Taylor Haulsee and Peter Kyriacopoulos, chief policy officer at the Association of Public Health Laboratories, there was no significant regulatory reform of diagnostics during Obama’s administration.
