Obama Announces Democratic Unity Fund to Make Sure Dems Are ‘Winning Up and Down the Ballot in 2020’

Former President Barack Obama teamed up with the Democratic National Convention to announce the creation of the “Democratic Unity Fund” on Friday.

“Next year is our chance to make sure that our shared values — of decency, honesty, and progress — are represented in the Oval Office,” the letter from Obama reads.

Obama then proclaimed that the fundraising effort will help Democrats win “up and down the ballot in 2020” by supporting Democrats running for election, and specifically, the future presidential nominee.

“I’m excited that the DNC asked me to announce a bold new effort: The Democratic Unity Fund. Launching today, the fund will be dedicated to electing our party’s eventual presidential nominee and winning up and down the ballot in 2020,” Obama said. “Because winning in 2020 won’t happen on its own.”

Obama explained how this fund will ensure that the eventual Democratic nominee will have a “strong, united, and well-organized” backing from the DNC, no matter who it ends up being.

“The Democratic Unity Fund is a promise that whoever earns our nomination, he or she will have a strong, united, and well-organized DNC ready to spring into action the moment the general election starts — a DNC that’s ready to lift us all to victory in November,” the letter continues, according to The Hill.

This letter signals a further attempt to shift the culture in the Democratic National Convention, which is now led by former Obama administration Secretary of Labor Tom Perez.

Perez claims to be actively working to facilitate more transparency over the nomination process, and the surrounding debates in 2019 and 2020, after complaints that the DNC tipped the scale toward former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in 2016.

Working toward another RIGGED election by throwing money instead of protecting and helping American citizens.
Obama could be I Jail for criminal conduct over false Russian dossier / FOIA and Clinton’s emails.

Isn’t it great that Super O is excited? Perez, the ass, is likely just giddy too.

“Decency, honesty and progress”. What a loaded crock of bovine excrement! And that from an illegitimate Marxist president with Indonesian citizenship. That creep wouldn’t know what the words decency and honesty meant and certainly NOT “progress” as he so ineptly demonstrated. Maybe he’s another of those can’t do; so do as I say and lie about it with a straight face. He needs to go back to Kenya.
