Harris tweeted a video of Obama’s speech during the convention on Monday.
She called Obama’s remarks a “powerful call to action.”
In return, Obama predicted Harris’ speech will reflect the same strength.
“And I know you’ll do the same tomorrow night, [Kamala Harris]. You’ve got this. So many people will be doing everything we can to get you and [Joe Biden] elected this fall,” Obama tweeted.
She added, “We can’t waste a moment. We’ve got to vote early—and show up in numbers that can’t be ignored.”

In her speech, she acknowledged Biden as a “profoundly decent man, guided by faith” and a “terrific vice president.”
Obama recognized voter suppression as a prevalent issue ahead of the election and called on Americans to make sure they request, fill out, and send back their mail-in ballots as soon as they can.
Fox News’ Chris Wallace called her comments “a heck of a contribution,” as IJR previously reported.
He claimed she “really flayed, sliced and diced Donald Trump.”
President Donald Trump fired back at Obama during a speech at a White House event for the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage.
Trump claimed the speech was not made live and it was taped “a long time ago” because the statistic she cited relating to the number of coronavirus deaths was lower than what it is now and called her address “extremely divisive.”
The Democratic National Convention will continue through Thursday.
