After listening to Obama's attacks yet again, on Sunday president Donald Trump chose to dismissed the 44th president of the United States as "grossly incompetent" and then he told reporters at the White House that administration officials "had a great weekend" during a working trip to Camp David.
Later that day Obama appeared again on the show called "Graduate Together" that was hosted by National Basketball Association star Lebron James and there he had a few more words left directed to president Donald Trump without mentioning his name.
Last month in a video endorsement of former Vice President Joe Biden, Obama had said that the country needed a leader who confronted the public health crisis and also the impact caused by the pandemic on the economy. "Every moment that Trump spends obsessing about Obama is one he isn't spending defeating Biden".
While noting he was not taking aim at Trump's comments specifically, Barr lambasted what he called the "increasing attempts to use the criminal justice system as a political weapon". "The legal tactic has been to gin up allegations of criminality by one's political opponents based on the flimsiest of legal theories", Barr said.
The US is the worst-hit country by the deadly contagion with at least 1,484,804 numbers of confirmed cases of coronavirus and over 89,399 fatalities. "And even more than Hillary [Clinton] or Biden, no person riles up the base of our party more than Barack Obama".
Last week Trump urged Senator Lindsey Graham, who chairs the powerful Senate judiciary committee, to call Obama to testify.

There will be no sports, recreational summer camps, festivals and concerts allowed on any Jersey Shore beaches , Murphy said. Companies must have a base office in New Jersey - home offices do not qualify.
Earlier this month, he moved to dismiss the criminal charges against Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who had already pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
"People should be going to jail for this stuff", Trump said in an interview with Fox Business Network, adding that "many people" were involved.
"Doing what feels good, what's convenient, what's easy - that's how little kids think. What is new is that so much of your generation has woken up to the fact that the status quo needs fixing; that the old ways of doing things don't work; and that it doesn't matter how much money you make if everyone around you is hungry and sick; that our society and democracy only works when we think not just about ourselves, but about each other".
"Look, he was an incompetent president, that's all I can say".
"We can not allow his process to be hijacked by efforts to drum up criminal investigations of either candidate".
