Obama and Biden will campaign together twice on Saturday, first at an event in Flint, Michigan, and later at an event in Detroit. The rallies represent the first time the duo has been on stage together with either one of them on a presidential ticket since 2012, the last time a Democratic nominee won the presidency.
Obama will give Biden a "personal testimonial to voters in the homestretch about Joe Biden's ability to lead us out of this pandemic... and to build America back even better," said the Obama aide.
The former President will also use the speech to tout down-ballot Democrats, such as Michigan Sen. Gary Peters, who is locked in a tight race against Republican John James.
Obama's most pointed critiques of Trump have focused on the coronavirus and that is expected to continue on Saturday in Michigan, where cases are spiking.
"What's his closing argument? That people are too focused on Covid. He said this at one of his rallies. Covid, Covid, Covid, he's complaining," Obama said in Florida this week. "He's jealous of Covid's media coverage. If he had been focused on Covid from the beginning, cases wouldn't be reaching new record highs across the country this week."
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
