Obama Explains His Post-Presidency Role In Rebuilding The Democratic Party


With only one month left in office, President Barack Obama is laying the foundations for the Democrat’s fight against President-elect Trump.

“Stand with me, work with me, let’s finish what we started,” Obama said in a fundraising email sent last Friday.

“Now, across the country, there are Democrats gearing up for the fights ahead – and some for their next race. And they need your help, too,” Obama said in the email.

This new fundraising campaign aligns with Obama’s plans to be remain active in politics post-presidency.

“I’m going to be organizing my presidential center, which is going to be focused on precisely this issue of how do we train and empower the next generation of leadership.” Obama said in an interview with Rolling Stone after the election.

Obama reiterated these plans Monday morning in an interview with NPR’s Steve Inskeep.

“There are such incredible young people who not only worked on my campaign, but I’ve seen in advocacy groups,” Obama told Inskeep. “I’ve seen passionate about issues like climate change, or conservation, criminal justice reform. You know, campaigns to — for a livable wage, or health insurance.”

Obama added that he will be providing the resources, credibility and spotlight to help young people fighting for these issues.

Following the results of the election, Obama will certainly have his work cut out for him.

Republicans will control the House, Senate and White House when Trump is sworn in on Jan. 20.

Republicans will also control 33 out of 50 governors on the state level, with complete control of governors and state legislatures in 25 states.

Democrats will have complete control in just 6 states.
