On Tuesday (April 25), former President Obama gave President Joe Biden’s reelection campaign a boost by saying, “let’s get to work.”

Taking to Twitter, Obama expressed being proud of Biden “and his administration” and what they have accomplished in recent years.

Obama touted how Biden had “delivered for the American people” and would continue to do so if he were re-elected, concluding his tweet with “Let’s get to work!”

The tweet accompanied a retweet of Biden’s video message and included a link to Biden’s campaign website.

Obama’s message came hours after Biden formally announced his reelection Bid, which followed months of expressing his plan to run.

In his announcement video, Biden touted his achievements and highlighted the January 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol and the protests after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.

The announcement, which was on the anniversary of his announcement for his 2020 Presidential campaign, highlighted how Biden had campaigned on fighting “for the soul of America.”

“The question we are facing is whether in the years ahead we have more freedom or less freedom, more rights or fewer,” Biden said in the 3-minute video titled “Freedom.”

Biden’s announcement comes at a time when voters have expressed concerns about a possible rematch between Biden and Trump.

Biden seeking reelection means that if he wins, he will become the oldest sitting president in U.S. history, which has sparked concerns among voters about Biden’s ability to serve another four years.

Biden is entering the Democratic race with self-help author Marianne Williamson and environmental lawyer and anti-vaccine activist Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
