Barack Obama made one secret decision that will change Trump’s life
Barack Obama’s plans for 2020 are the great unknown of this election cycle.
But just because Obama never went public with his intentions does not mean the former President isn’t making his presence felt in the race.
And Barack Obama made one secret decision that will change Trump’s life.
After Joe Biden won a blowout win in the South Carolina primary, the Democrat Party establishment jumped off the sidelines of the race and united around Biden as their best hope to stop Bernie Sanders from winning the nomination.
Pete Buttigieg, Beto O’Rourke, Amy Klobuchar, Tim Kaine, Terry McAuliffe, and other Democrat Party establishment heavyweights all endorsed Biden on the eve of the Super Tuesday contests.
But while Barack Obama’s name was absent from the endorsement roll call, NBC News reporting made it clear that behind the scenes Obama pushed other top Democrats into action.
NBC News reported, “People close to Obama said the former president has been keeping close tabs on the race. They said the signal has been sent in the past 36-hours that he sees Biden as the candidate to back, and they don’t need Obama to say it publicly or privately.”
“He’s not going to get involved in endorsing anyone for this nomination,” Biden told NBC’s Mike Memoli on Monday.
“But I think he will make sure that, you know, the party is united at the end of the day, and as I will, whether I win or not.”
Obama stayed out of the endorsement game because should the Super Delegates steal the nomination from Sanders at the convention, Obama is the only party figure with the stature to try and stitch the Democrat coalition back together and keep enough Sanders supporters in the fold to give Biden a fighting chance at victory in November.
