Former President Barack Obama officially announced his endorsement for his former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday. With endorsements from Bernie Sanders and Barack Obama in under 48 hours, the Democratic party puts out a powerful indication that 2020 will be different from that of the 2016 elections. It is famously believed that due to the deadly unwillingness of the Democratic Party’s support to Hillary Clinton in 2016 has contributed to Trump’s victory. Elizabeth is also expected to endorse Biden in the coming few days, making it clear that the Democratic party is united to defeat President Trump.
Speaking in a video stream announcing his decision, Obama explained the importance of leadership, which is required to deal with the coronavirus pandemic. He said - “The kind of leadership that’s guided by knowledge, experience, honesty, humility, empathy, and grace. That kind of leadership doesn’t just belong in our state capitals and mayors’ offices. It belongs in the White House, and that’s why I’m so proud to endorse Joe Biden for the President of the United States.” Obama further added, “choosing Biden as my Vice President was one of the best decisions I ever made, and he became a close friend. I believe Joe has all the qualities we need in a President right now.” Former President also spoke in length about the way Biden endured himself even after losing his family members, his first wife, and two children. The role of Biden during the recession period, the Ebola outbreak, and other crises during the Obama administration.
In his video message, Obama also praised Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’s campaign. “Bernie’s a true American, a man who has devoted his life for the hopes, dreams, and frustrations of Americans. Bernie and I haven’t always agreed on many issues, but we have always shared a bond and commitment to make America a fairer and more equitable society,” Obama said. Responding to Obama’s endorsement, Biden said - “Barack - This endorsement means the world to Jill and me. We are going to build on the progress we made together, and there’s no one I’d rather have standing by my side.”
Hours after the official announcement from Obama, Joe Biden posted a picture of them with the caption, “Let’s do this” from his official Twitter handle:
