OBAMA HAS SHOWN BIDEN SUPPORT

Former President Barack Obama posted a rare selfie of himself and Joe Biden on social media on September 8, 2018.

Obama has always avoided selfies, and he has famously only taken them with close friends and family. The photo portrays the two politicians smiling and is captioned: 

"My brother and friend @JoeBiden is back on Instagram. Welcome back, Joe - you will always be one of the rare exceptions to my no-selfie rule."

If Joe Biden does decide to make a bid for the top spot at the Oval Office he will certainly be able to count on the support of the Obamas.

Biden has stated that if he decides not to run, he will throw his full weight and support behind the Democratic candidate in a bid to oust Donald Trump and prevent his second term.
