Former United States President Barack Obama has criticised US leaders overseeing the nation’s response to the coronavirus.
In his speech to graduates from historically black colleges and universities, Mr Obama said the Covid-19 outbreak had exposed failings in the country’s leadership. His remarks were unexpectedly political.
“More than anything, this pandemic has fully, finally torn back the curtain on the idea that so many of the folks in charge know what they’re doing,” he said.
“A lot of them aren’t even pretending to be in charge,” he added.
