Former President Donald Trump recently reckoned that former President Barack Obama was privately controlling the country during a rally in South Carolina on Saturday.
While speaking to supporters in Conway, South Carolina, the Republican frontrunner claimed that President Joe Biden is not mentally competent to run the country because he “can’t find his way off the stage.” Trump then said Obama runs the White House through his former vice president.
During his rant, Trump made sure to emphasize Obama’s middle name “Hussein” which was met by laughter from his supporters in the crowd.
“I don’t think he knows what the hell he’s doing anyways. I always say by the people who surround him or sometimes I’ll interchange, I’ll say, Barack Hussein Obama. But every time I say that the fake news. Oh, that’s a lot of fake news back there…Every time I say it. Anytime I want to have a little fun, governor. We have fun. Even though the country’s going to hell, we have to have a little bit of fun. But every time I interchange Barack Hussein…remember Rush Limbaugh, he’d go, Barack Hussein Obama. I wonder what he was getting at. But every time I do interchanging, we do a little interchanging. They say he doesn’t know who the president is. He thinks it’s Barack Obama. I say no, no, but I think Barack Obama has a lot to do with the running of the country right now, and we can’t let that happen. He has a lot to do with it.”
Trump, along with his Republican allies in Congress, have promoted Special Counsel Robert Hur’s recent report calling Biden an “elderly man with a poor memory” to argue he is not healthy enough to run the White House.
