Michelle Obama Refuses to Endorse Biden For 2024 Run

'I think that he's doing the best he can under some tough circumstances... '

(Headline USAFormer First Lady Michelle Obama declined to endorse President Joe Biden for a second term in 2024, claiming there’s a lot that could happen over the next two years.

When asked directly by ABC News this week whether she would back Biden for reelection, Obama said: “I will have to see.”

“The reason I don’t speak on that is because I know what it feels like to be on the other side of it, and I think that that’s a personal decision that he and his family have to make,” she explained.

“Probably, if I hadn’t been through it, I’d feel more cavalier about opining on it, but I know it’s a personal call, and I don’t want to be one of the millions of people weighing in on what he should do, he and Jill should do.”

She did, however, commend Biden for his performance in office thus far.

“I think he’s doing a great job. This is a hard job,” Obama said. “I think that he’s doing the best he can under some tough circumstances.”

The Obamas famously refused to endorse Biden for president in 2020 until after Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., had dropped out of the Democratic primary. Biden claimed he had asked former President Barack Obama not to endorse him, saying at the time, “I asked President Obama not to endorse and he doesn’t want to. Whoever wins this nomination should win this on their own merits.”

One Obama confidant said at the time that the couple was unsure whether Biden would be able to win the Democratic primary, let alone the general election against former President Donald Trump.

“He would never tell Joe not to run,” the source said. “Does he think Biden will win the primary? He doesn’t know the answer any more than the rest of us do.”
