Former President Barack Obama attacked Jared Kushner, President Trump's son-in-law and advisor, Tuesday after he suggested that black Americans did not want to be successful.
During an interview with Fox & Friends on Monday morning, Kushner described racial inequality as a "grievance" and suggested that protesters who had spent the summer fighting systemic racism and police brutality were more concerned with "signs of virtue" than solving problems were interested.
"What we have seen in the black community, largely made up of Democrats," argued Kushner, "is that President Trump's policies are policies that can help people break out of the problems they are facing complain, but he can. " I don't want them to be more successful than them.
At a drive-in rally in Florida on Tuesday, Obama took Kushner to the ground for his comments.
"[Kushner] says blacks want to be successful," Obama said at a drive-in rally in Orlando for Joe Biden, its former vice president and the Democratic presidential candidate. "Who are these people? What history books do you read? Who are you talking to? "
Obama also followed up on Trump for lied about how much he did for black Americans. Trump has repeatedly claimed that since Abraham Lincoln disbanded the institution of slavery, he has done more for black Americans than any other president.
"He loves to talk about black unemployment," Obama said at the rally. "Unemployment was really high when I came in and we kept that unemployment down and it kept falling and he wants to get credit for that."
Obama has been on the campaign trail for the past two weeks, supporting his former Vice President Joe Biden. Obama approached the role almost gleefully, frustrating Trump for four years for his policies and actions.
Last week in Philadelphia, Obama held back zero strikes when he attacked the president for his coronavirus reaction, the economy, in an attempt to denounce white supremacy.
“He has shown no interest in getting the job done or helping anyone other than himself and his friends, or treating the presidency like a reality show to get attention on, including when his TV You know he's upset, ”said the former president to the clapping and honking noises.
