President Donald Trump, Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, Secretary Tom Perez, and former President Barack Obama are teaming up to develop a new political movement aimed at winning over voters in 2020 and beyond.
In a joint statement released Thursday, the White House and Democratic National Committee announced a “New American Movement” aimed at mobilizing “millions of Americans” and “demanding the political system we live in change.”
The statement called on “millennials to unite behind our candidates, to help elect them and to stand up to the forces of corporate greed and inequality.”
It added that the goal is “to inspire millions more people to rise up against the corrupting forces of a rigged system that’s rigged against them.”
The effort comes on the heels of a series of public events and events by the Democratic National Convention.
In addition to the two Democratic presidential hopefuls speaking in front of the DNC floor, Biden, who will take the stage at the party’s convention on July 25, hosted a rally for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, the first sitting U.S. president to do so.
The DNC also hosted several other events, including an event for Sanders and Biden.
Biden, whose wife, Jill Biden, is also running for president, has been at the forefront of the political movement, holding numerous public events in recent weeks, including a sit-down with Trump at Trump Tower last week, an event with Biden at the White Tower last weekend, and a public forum on the steps of the Capitol with Biden on Friday.
