Obama: This Generation Can Be The One That Creates "A New Normal In America"

|

Former President Obama tweeted a video Tuesday night telling young voters that their generation can be the one that creates "a new normal" in America in a push for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Obama will start campaigning with his former vice president this week.

"Hey everybody," Obama introduced himself. "One of the most inspiring things about this year has been to see so many young Americans fired up, organizing, marching, and fighting for change."

"Your generation can be the one that creates a new normal in America -- one that's fairer, where the system treats everybody equally, and gives everyone opportunity," Obama told viewers. "We can come out of this moment stronger than before. Voting doesn't accomplish that on its own, but we can't accomplish that without voting."


"I know there's plenty out there to make people feel cynical," the former president lamented. "And plenty of people are going to seize on that to convince you that your vote doesn't matter. It's not new. It's one of the oldest voter suppression tactics there is."

"To change the game on any issues we care about, Joe Biden needs your vote," Obama said. "I trust him to be a great president. He's different. He's on the right side of the issues. He'll get the job done."
