President Donald Trump went on Twitter on Friday to attack Joe Biden, claiming the Democrat was "disrespectful" to Barack Obama.
Trump meets Biden over Obama
"Joe Biden was very disrespectful to President Obama in last night's debate when he said he, Joe, was 'vice president, not president' when trying to find excuses for their failed immigration policies," Trump wrote. "I wonder what & # 39; O & # 39; was thinking when he heard that?"

This came after Thursday night debate host, Kristen Welker of NBC News, asked Biden about the Obama administration's immigration policy and said that "the government has not implemented immigration reform … why should voters trust you with an immigration overhaul now?"
“Because we made a mistake. It was taking too long to get it right. Too long to get it right, ”Biden replied, according to The Hill. "I will be President of the United States, not Vice President of the United States."

Obama was busy on the campaign for Biden this week launching attacks on President Donald Trump. Trump shot back by claiming that Obama was actually an asset to his own campaign and by pointing out that it took Obama months to actually support Biden in that race.
“Obama stands up for us. Every time he speaks, people come to us, ”Trump tweeted on Thursday. "He didn't even want to support Sleepy Joe. Did so long after the primaries ended!"
