Wilmington: Barack Obama, the first black president of the United States, will brand Donald Trump in his speech at the Democratic convention on Wednesday. He never takes his office seriously. Putting American democracy at risk.
Obama said that on handing over the White House to Trump in 2017, he thought the Republican “might show some interest in taking the job seriously; that he might come to feel the weight of the office and discover some reverence for the democracy that had been placed in his care.”
“But he never did,” Obama said, according to excerpts of his speech released early.
As a result, Trump made the United States “release the worst impulse, our pride and reputation around the world have greatly diminished, and our democratic system has never been threatened like it is now,” Obama said.
The speech will be held later next week, when Senator Kamala Harris has officially accepted the nomination as Joe Biden’s running mate and the first black woman to attend a large party. This is one of the highlights of the Democratic convention until Thursday.
Former first lady Hillary Clinton (Hillary Clinton) lost to Trump in the 2016 presidential election, and he will also speak at the convention. Since almost all coronavirus security measures were staged online, the conference was forced to step down.
Others on the bill include Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, who unsuccessfully challenged Biden for the nomination, and Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the House of Representatives.
Former Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who has become a gun control advocate after being shot and severely wounded in a 2011 assassination attempt, is also scheduled to speak along with Emma Gonzalez, a survivor of the Parkland school shooting.
Young activists will tackle the dangers of climate change, while Hispanic families will discuss immigration’s contribution to the United States.
But it is expected that the highlight of the evening will be Obama’s speech and Harris’s formal nomination as the Democratic vice presidential candidate.
Obama took a back seat in the controversial Democratic primary, but now he still has considerable influence in Biden’s campaign.
He will say in his upcoming speech: “Tonight, I want you to believe in Joe and Kamala’s ability to lead this country out of the dark times and rebuild it better.”
