Of course, Trump did not let Obama off the hook for mocking him, taking to Twitter to share a clap-back with both Obama and Fox News for covering the speech.

"Obama is drawing VERY small (tiny) numbers of people. Biden is drawing almost no one. We are drawing tens of thousands of people. You’ll see that again today. The Great Red Wave is coming!" he responded to Obama via a tweet.

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za also reported, President Donald Trump has cautioned Americans against a Joe Biden presidency and claimed that Biden's election would be tantamount to auctioning the US to China.

In a brief statement, Trump dismissed Biden as a corrupt leader who will close ranks with China's Communist Party and East Asia country will "own the US".
