Former President Barack Obama is ready to make his comeback to the political sphere, and according to former Attorney General Eric Holder, it will be a “Grand Entrance.”
Holder, who served as attorney general under Obama until Loretta Lynch replaced him in 2015, told reporters Tuesday at a briefing to expect Obama’s imminent return to partisan politics. Just over one month after leaving office, the former president has already signaled his willingness to engage in partisan fights and criticize President Donald Trump’s policies.
“It’s coming. He’s coming,” Holder said. “And he’s ready to roll.”
As Eric Holder stated, Obama’s will put efforts in fundraising for Democrats, connecting with state legislators, and aiding in the new National Democratic Redistricting Committee’s (NDRC) endeavors.
Here’s part of Holder’s statement:
“I have no doubt that in the very near future President Obama will start going through sermon withdrawal and feel the need to be all over our TVs again,” Eddie Zipperer, an assistant professor of political science at Georgia Military College, told LifeZette. “Obama is great at campaigning and raising money. I’m sure he’ll raise millions. But, if money or more lousy [Democratic] messaging could hurt Trump, it would have hurt.”
Even before he vacated office, Obama implied he had no intention of permanently leaving the political and public spheres. At his final news conference as president, Obama suggested he would jump back into the fray if Trump did something drastic.
“But there’s a difference between that normal functioning of politics and certain issues or certain moments where I think our core values may be at stake,” Obama said.
