Former President Barack Obama will be keen on President Donald Trump and promise that Joe Biden will lead the country out of the dark ages in a speech on Wednesday evening at the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia.
There he will vouch for his "friend" and "brother", former Vice President Joe Biden, while casting President Donald Trump as a man who never took his job seriously or did it well.
"He has shown no interest in getting into work, no interest in finding common ground, no interest in using the incredible power of his office to help anyone other than himself and his friends," Obama said in remarks say about the virtual democratic national convention. "No interest in treating the presidency as anything other than just another reality show that he can use to get the attention he craves."
President Barack Obama will address the Democratic National Convention from Philadelphia on Wednesday evening, where he will personally call on Americans to vote for former Vice President Joe Biden and his colleague Sen. Kamala Harris

Obama will remember the time he spent with two men who will be voting this November.
"I sat in the Oval Office with the two men running for president," Obama will say.
He will admit that he never believed that Trump would continue the Obama-era politics.
“In the interests of our country, I was hoping that Donald Trump would show some interest in taking the job seriously. that he could feel the weight of the office and discover awe of the democracy that was made available to him, ”Obama says.
"But he never did," the remarks continue.
As his wife said Monday night, Obama will argue that Trump will not be able to take over the presidency.
"Donald Trump didn't grow into the job because he couldn't," Obama wants to say.
& # 39; And the consequences of that failure are grave. 170,000 Americans dead. Millions of jobs are gone. Our worst impulses have been unleashed, our proud reputation around the world has been severely weakened and our democratic institutions are threatened like never before, ”he continues.
Obama will consider Biden a good man and a strong leader.
"Twelve years ago, when I was looking for a vice president, I didn't know I would find a brother in the end," Obama will say. Joe and I came from different places and different generations. But what I quickly admired about him was his resilience, born of too much struggle; his empathy, born of too much grief. & # 39;
The former president will talk about how Biden treats everyone he meets with "respect and dignity".
The point was highlighted during the week on the virtual DNC with Biden in a video and his decades of friendships with Amtrak employees.
For over eight years, Joe was the last in the room when I faced a big decision. He made me a better president. He has the character and experience to make us a better country, "Obama will say.
