Obama Voices Private Concerns Over Biden’s 2024 Prospects

A Washington Post report has revealed that former President Barack Obama has privately expressed concerns regarding President Joe Biden’s chances of winning reelection.

According to sources, Obama has told his allies that Biden’s path to securing another term became more difficult after his lackluster debate performance against former President Donald Trump.

Publicly, Obama has remained supportive of Biden. Following the debate, he posted on social media, “Bad debate nights happen. Trust me, I know,” urging voters to stay focused on the bigger picture. He framed the election as a crucial choice between Biden, whom he praised for his lifelong dedication to ordinary people, and Trump, whom he criticized for his self-interest and dishonesty.

“Between someone who tells the truth; who knows right from wrong and will give it to the American people straight — and someone who lies through his teeth for his own benefit,” Obama said, emphasizing the high stakes of the November election.

Lauren Hitt, spokesperson for the Biden campaign, highlighted Biden’s appreciation for Obama’s consistent support, describing him as a vital advocate and advisor.

The Washington Post report also noted that Obama spoke with Biden over the phone after the debate. While the specifics of their conversation remain unclear, sources indicate that Obama has long been concerned about Biden’s ability to overcome Trump’s political strengths.

“Obama has long harbored worries about his party defeating Donald Trump in November, repeatedly warning Biden in recent months about how challenging it will be to win reelection,” the report stated. Obama’s ongoing concerns reflect a broader anxiety within the Democratic Party about the upcoming election and the formidable challenge posed by Trump’s potential return to power.

These revelations shed light on the private apprehensions of one of Biden’s most influential supporters and underscore the critical nature of the 2024 presidential race.
