Former US President Barack Obama, has claimed the way President Trump has responded to the coronavirus pandemic so far is very disgraceful and "an absolute chaotic disaster".
Obama, who preceeded Trump, made the statement in a private call on Friday night with people who worked for him in the White House and across his administration.
According to CNN report, the call which lasted for 30-minute, had Obama stating that the terrible handling of the coronavirus outbreak served as a critical reminder that a dependable government leadership is needed during a global crisis.
Obama was quoted as saying:
"This election that's coming up — on every level — is so important because what we're going to be battling is not just a particular individual or a political party.
"What we're fighting against is these long-term trends in which being selfish, being tribal, being divided and seeing others as an enemy — that has become a stronger impulse in American life.
"It's part of the reason why the response to this global crisis has been so anemic and spotty.
"It would have been bad even with the best of governments. It has been an absolute chaotic disaster when that mindset of 'what's in it for me' and 'to heck with everybody else' ... is operationalized in our government.
"That's why, I, by the way, am going to be spending as much time as necessary and campaigning as hard as I can for Joe Biden."
America has been the nation most hit by the coronavirus pandemic, with confirmed cases topping 1.34million and 80,040 deaths recorded.
