The former President of the United States of America, Barack Obama has joined millions around the world to mark Mother’s Day, as he shared a lovely loved up photo of his wife Michelle and himself to celebrate the day.
Barack Obama who has never missed an opportunity to celebrate his wife on her special day, especially on days like this, shared the photo that has already been liked by over 600k social media followers and thousands of comments in less than ten minutes after it was shared, captioned the photo with these words that reads:
“Even if you can’t give the moms in your life a hug today, I hope you can give them an extra thank you today. Thank you and Happy Mother’s Day to the woman who makes it all possible. Love you, @michelleobama,” he said.
The Mother’s Day post by Barack Obama, is coming just a few hours after he berated the COVID-19 response approach by his country, the United States; calling the approach “Chaotic Disaster”. He made this statement in a private conference call on Saturday.
His remarks were made while encouraging former staff to work for Joe Biden’s presidential election team, CNN says.
The White House said in response that President Trump’s “unprecedented” action had “saved Americans’ lives”.
During the call, Mr Obama said his Republican successor’s approach to government was partly to blame for the US response to coronavirus.
“It would have been bad even with the best of government,” he was quoted as saying in the call. “It has been an absolute chaotic disaster when that mindset of ‘what’s in it for me’ and ‘to heck with everybody else’, when that mindset is operationalised in our government.”
Mr Obama also strongly criticised the decision to drop criminal charges against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
More than 78,000 people have now died and the US has 1.2m confirmed cases – both by far the highest in the world.
Many states introduced lockdown measures in March but have now lifted restrictions, allowing people to return to work
