Joe Biden's presidential campaign is going quite well. He is way ahead of Hillary Clinton in most states and has an average lead over Donald Trump of around 10 percentage points.
On Wednesday afternoon, Biden released his secret weapon; former President Barack Obama. Obama held a drive-in rally in Philadelphia to reach out to black male voters.
During the event, the 44th president referred to the recent revelation that Donald Trump has a secret Chinese bank account. And that the account was used to pay a much higher tax rate in China than in the United States.
Obama told the crowd:
“We know he (Trump) continues to do business in China because he has a secret Chinese bank account. How is that possible? How is that possible? Look, can you imagine that I had a secret Chinese bank account? When I ran for re-election? You think Fox News was a little worried about that? They would have called me Beijing Barry. "

The former president continued, “It's not a great idea to have a president who owes a lot of money to people overseas. That's not a good idea. I mean, of the taxes Donald Trump pays, he may send more to foreign governments than he pays in the United States. For his first year at the White House, he paid just $ 750 in federal income tax. Look, my first job was with a Baskin Robbins when I was 15 years old. I think I may have paid more taxes this year. "
