WASHINGTON, DC: President Joe Biden's re-election campaign is reportedly attempting to organize a headline-grabbing, first-of-its-kind fundraiser to increase the momentum among Democratic voters, as per an NBC News report.

The plan aims to bring together three Democratic presidents, Biden, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama, for a fundraiser event, according to four people familiar with the planning.

As per the report, discussions are ongoing to coordinate the trio's schedule, and the event will likely take place in March or April.

Neither Biden's campaign team nor spokespersons for Clinton and Obama have commented on the reports so far.

Biden's campaign hopes for team effort to win a second term

By bringing on stage Clinton and Obama, as the voters' energy currently lacks an expected momentum, the incumbent's campaign hopes that an all-hands-on-deck approach could help Biden be in the White for four more years.

The President and his team have ramped up the campaign in light of former President Donald Trump cementing his position as the clear frontrunner in the GOP primary race after his success in Iowa and New Hampshire.

The Democratic party, on the other hand, deviated from its 50-year-old tradition and chose South Carolina as Biden's first contesting state for primaries. The move aimed to give a first say to a more diverse community.

Biden addressed the state's Black voters on Saturday, January 27, speaking about the country's economic growth. At the same time, Vice President Kamala Harris kicked off some events with Latino voters in Nevada.

With no strong opposition to the incumbent from the party, the election campaign has shifted its focus to a general election mode against Trump.

However, Biden's not-so-shiny popularity among voters added to the polls, suggesting he is trailing behind his predecessor and has forced the campaign team to go to any extent to ensure victory. According to the latest Reuters/Ipsos polls, Biden is trailing behind Trump by six percentage points.

Internet reacts to first-of-its kind fundraiser

Social media users ridiculed the Biden campaign's plans to bring together Clinton and Obama with Biden for the campaign fundraiser. Social media reactions suggested that even such a move could not help win the President in the November election.

One user remarked, "The national debt boy band."


Another user wrote, "Even that won’t save Biden, he is done."


"Corruption for sure. They're really planning on getting rid of Biden but he's too far gone to see it," a third user added.


A fourth user said, "What a waste."

Another remark read, "Desperation."



"It's pretty hard to show enthusiasm for a man who can't complete a sentence," another user said.


One response read, "They are setting up Hail Mary fundraising."
