Donald Trump pulled a typical Trump move on Wednesday by blaming his predecessor for the troubles his administration is having dealing with the outbreak of the coronavirus.
Trump told the cameras on Wednesday at the White House that “The Obama administration made a decision on testing that turned out to be very detrimental to what we’re doing, and we undid that decision a few days ago so that testing can take place in a much more accurate and rapid fashion.”

It didn’t take long for Trump to get called out on Twitter for blaming Obama, yet again, for his own failures as president.
One word: Pathetic!

Deeeeeeeep State stuff here. In 2008, Obama operatives set forth a plan to ruin Trump’s plans to test for a yet public virus in order to thwart his presidency. https://t.co/ORqFJYKhDh

President Trump gutted our scientific civil service and our readiness to deal with disasters. Sure it is gutless and wrong for Trump to blame President Obama, when Trump endangered all of US, but it is also his way of finally admitting how poor the government response has been.

Pres Trump just now: “The Obama Administration made a decision on testing that turned out to be very detrimental to what we're doing.”

Team Trump just admitted they lied about working on #CoronavirusOutbreak for weeks and weeks. Trump and Pence just blamed Obama for a regulation that slowed down testing. When did Trump change that regulation? Weeks ago? Before his press conference a week ago? Nope, 4 days ago: https://t.co/GJMQk1psku

Trump/Pence are blaming Obama for coronavirus. Cannot make it up.

Trump blames his administration's failure to conduct testing for the coronavirus (less than 500 tests as of last Friday) on OBAMA.
This is not a joke. https://t.co/Qbu9Gc3RsN
