Former President Barack Obama received high praise from people after he tweeted out a message regarding the outbreak of the coronavirus.
“Protect yourself and your community from coronavirus with common sense precautions: wash your hands, stay home when sick and listen to the @CDCgov and local health authorities,” Obama wrote. “Save the masks for health care workers. Let’s stay calm, listen to the experts, and follow the science.”

Donald Trump, on the other hand, tried to blame the Obama administration for his own administration’s failures when dealing with the coronavirus.
Trump told reporters on Wednesday: “The Obama administration made a decision on testing that turned out to be very detrimental to what we’re doing & we undid that decision a few days ago so that testing can take place in a much more accurate & rapid fashion.”
While Trump received backlash for his remarks, Obama received praise:
