The 59-year-old Obama remained on the sidelines during the Democratic presidential primaries but endorsed his former deputy after he won the party nomination.

During the party convention in August, Obama urged voters to support Biden and said “our democracy” is at stake.

Obama said the 77-year-old Biden “made me a better president.

“He’s got the character and the experience to make us a better country,” he said.
