Obama to Endorse Biden – Video confirms several leaks
The former president of the United States, Barack Obama, will be throwing some support behind Joe Biden. In a video message that went out only a short while ago, Obama announced his endorsement of the Democratic nominee.
In the video he praises Bernie Sanders for his desire to change and simultaneously throws his full support behind Biden.
He does not simply use this video as a way to gain some more political points, more so that it was also the right time to offer advice and criticism. He praised Sanders for his steadfastness and his consistency towards progressivism in the face of ridicule. While also offering some fairly direct criticism of the current Administration under Trump.
“One thing everybody has learned by now is that the Republicans occupying the White House and running the US Senate are not interested in progress. They’re interested in power.”
Simultaneously however, Biden was Obama’s Vice President and the two became very close friends over the course of his presidency. Meaning that Obama does have that feeling of quality and reassurance in someone he knows so well.
