Obama goes off on Trump for reportedly having a 'secret Chinese bank account'
During a feisty campaign rally speech in Philadelphia on Wednesday, former President Barack Obama went off on his predecessor's foreign financial ties, pointing to a recent New York Times story that found President Donald Trump has kept a secret Chinese bank account.
"How is that possible?" Obama exclaimed. "How is that possible? A secret Chinese bank account!"
He also observed the rank hypocrisy in right-wing media that has been obvious throughout Trump's term in office.
"Can you imagine if I had had a secret Chinese bank account?" Obama asked. "You think Fox News might have been a little concerned about that? They would have called me 'Beijing Barry.'"
He added: "It is not a great idea to have a president who owes a bunch of money to people overseas. That's not a good idea. I mean, of the taxes Donald Trump pays, he may be sending more to foreign governments than he pays in the United States."
