Former president Barack Obama is reportedly not a fan of the White House's response to the coronavirus.

According to CNN, the former president talked about the government's actions during a web call on Friday with those who once served in his administration.

Yahoo News reportedly obtained audio from that call.

In the audio, Obama calls the Trump administration's response "an absolute chaotic disaster."

He also told those on the call that he feels there is an urgent need to enthusiastically support former Vice President Biden's presidential campaign.
