President Obama Proudly Endorses His Friend Joe Biden

"I’m so proud to endorse Joe Biden for President of the United States." Choosing Joe to be my Vice President was one of the best decisions I ever made, and he became a close friend. And I believe Joe has all the qualities we need in a President right now.

"Let me start by saying the obvious – these aren’t normal times. As we all manage our way through a pandemic unlike anything we’ve seen in a century, Michelle and I hope that you and your families are safe and well.

Over the past weeks, we’ve seen plenty of examples of the kind of courage, kindness, and selflessness that we’re going to need to get through one of the most difficult times in our history. We have been amazed at the incredible bravery of our medical professionals who are putting their lives on the line to save others. The public servants and health officials battling this disease. The workers taking risks every day to keep our economy running. And everyone who’s making their own sacrifice at home with their families, all for the greater good. But if there’s one thing we’ve learned as a country from moments of great crisis, it’s that the spirit of looking out for one another can’t be restricted to our homes, or our workplaces, or our neighborhoods, or our houses of worship. It also has to be reflected in our national government. The kind of leadership that’s guided by knowledge and experience; honesty and humility; empathy and grace – that kind of leadership doesn’t just belong in our state capitols and mayors' offices. It belongs in the White House.

And that’s why I’m so proud to endorse Joe Biden for President of the United States. And that’s why I’m asking you to pitch in $25 to his campaign.

He’s someone whose own life has taught him how to persevere; how to bounce back when you’ve been knocked down. When Joe talks with parents who’ve lost their jobs, we hear the son of a man who once knew the pain of having to tell his children that he’d lost his. When Joe talks about opportunity for our kids, we hear the young father who took the train home each night so he could tuck his children into bed – and we hear the influence of Jill, a life-long teacher.

When Joe talks to families who’ve lost a hero, we hear another parent of an American veteran; a kindred spirit; somebody whose faith has endured the hardest loss there is. That’s Joe. Through all his trials, he’s never once forgotten the values or the moral fiber that his parents passed on to him, and that made him who he is. That’s what steels his faith – in God, in America, and in all of us. That steel made him an incredible partner when I needed one the most.

Our country’s future hangs on this election. And it won’t be easy. The other side has a massive war chest. The other side has a propaganda network with little regard for the truth.

We are a more just, more equal nation because of Justice Ginsburg. Now it’s up to all of us to carry on her fight.
Joe Biden
The 200,000 people we've lost to COVID-19 weren't nobodies, Mr. President. They were our parents and grandparents, sons and daughters, friends and co-workers. They were Americans.
Joe Biden
I’ve dealt with guys like Donald Trump my whole life. Guys who look down on you because they’ve got a lot of money. Guys who think they’re better than you. Guys who inherited everything they ever got in life — and then squandered it.

While other nations worked around the clock to get this virus under control, our president was too busy tweeting and golfing. Now, nearly 200,000 Americans have died. It didn’t have to happen this way.
Joe Biden
Thank you for the warm welcome, Manitowoc! With the help of companies like Wisconsin Aluminum Foundry, we're going to revitalize American manufacturing and make sure the future is made here in America.
Joe Biden
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was proof that courage, conviction, and moral clarity can change not just the law — but also the world.
Joe Biden
Our frontline workers have sacrificed so much during this pandemic — the least President Trump could do is tell them the truth.
Joe Biden
Honor and decency are on the ballot this November.

We’ve reached a tragic milestone that I never hoped to see. 200,000 American lives have now been lost to COVID-19. I know nothing I can say will make up for the pain and loss many are feeling. I just want you to know: I am grieving with you. And if I have the honor to be your President, I will fight for you and get this virus under control.

We must put communities of color at the forefront of our COVID-19 recovery plan.

200,000 Americans have died from COVID-19. It didn’t have to be this way. I feel the deep pain and loss of families across this nation. I mourn with you, and I will fight hard to get this virus under control and save lives.

While the rest of the world works hard to get the virus under control, today we’ll reach a grim milestone: 200,000 American lives lost to COVID-19. It didn’t have to be this bad.
