President Trump speculated that former Vice President Joe Biden lied to cover up the embarrassment of failing to secure the endorsement of former President Obama.
“How he doesn’t get President Obama to endorse him — there has to be some reason why he’s not endorsing him,” Trump said, in an exclusive interview with the Hill.tv. “He was the vice president. They seem to have gotten along. And how President Obama’s not endorsing him is rather a big secret.”
“If you know the answer, let me know,” Trump joked to interviewers Saagar Enjeti and Jordan Fabian.
“Then he goes and lies and said, ‘I asked the president not to endorse me.’ Give me a break,” Trump said, before going on to speculate that Obama likely has his own reasons for withholding an endorsement from his own vice president. “There is something going on in that brain of his.”
