MIAMI SPRINGS, Florida — Former president Barack Obama ripped into President Donald Trump as he described his successor as a thin-skinned bully whose weaknesses were revealed after he walked off the set during a television interview last week.

"He likes to act tough and talk tough. He thinks scowling and being mean is tough," Obama said at a drive-in rally for Democratic candidate Joe Biden in South Florida. "But when '60 Minutes' and Lesley Stahl are too tough for you, you ain't all that tough."

Obama is hitting the campaign trail for Biden in the final days of a close re-election battle for Trump.

The former president headed to Florida over the weekend in what is projected to be one of the most pivotal states in next week's election.

"If you bring Florida home, this thing's over," Obama told supporters at the stop in Miami Springs on Saturday. "That way I don't have to stay up too late. I don't have to wait for the results through the next day. I want to go to sleep knowing that we're going to have a president fighting on our behalf."
