Trump: “I am running against, perhaps in the history of presidential politics, the worst candidate,” Trump said about Biden as the crowd laughed. “Obama wouldn’t even endorse him. They ran together. Obama wouldn’t even endorse him.”
Former President Barack Obama returns to Philadelphia on Wednesday for his first in-person 2020 campaign event for Joe Biden.
With 13 days to go, his debut will be in the same city in which the Obamas joined Bill and Hillary Clinton during their final campaign stop before the 2016 election.
It comes as Biden took to social media on Tuesday afternoon and tweeted his confidence in victory from his basement.
Due to restrictions imposed by the coronavirus pandemic, Obama will speak to a small, select crowd at a drive-in rally, where supporters will hear his message over the radio.
At this stage it is not known if Michelle Obama will be at his side.
Obama’s turn on the campaign trail was announced last week, as Breitbart News reported.
Donald Trump said then it was “good news” Obama would campaign for his former vice president as it would focus minds on just what is at stake in 2020.
“Well, that’s good news,” Trump said. “He campaigned harder than Hillary Clinton did for Hillary, and it just made us stronger.”
Trump reminded the audience Obama failed to endorse Biden during the primary and even waited several weeks after Biden won the nomination before officially getting behind him.
“I am running against, perhaps in the history of presidential politics, the worst candidate,” Trump said about Biden as the crowd laughed. “Obama wouldn’t even endorse him. They ran together. Obama wouldn’t even endorse him.”
Trump’s message reinforced one he has made many times before about the “horror” of the Obama/Biden term in the White House.
