Former President Barack Obama is back in politics.
However, instead of being at the top of the power chain, he’s merely looking from the outside in as Democrats face an uphill battle against the Republican majority and President Donald Trump.
On Monday, Obama arrived back in Washington D.C. in preparation for a fundraiser on Thursday that supports a new group with a goal of taking helping Democrats draw “friendlier” legislative district lines in what seems to be his first major “political event” since leaving office.
And Obama will take charge in this new initiative.
The fundraiser for the National Democratic Redistricting Committee will be held at a private home in Washington, and the House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi along with Attorney General Eric Holder will also be attending.
According to statements from an Obama spokesman, Kevin Lewis, the NDRC is “building a targeted, state-by-state strategy that ensures Democrats can fight back and produce fairer maps in the 2021 redistricting process.”
“Restoring fairness to our democracy by advocating for fairer, more inclusive district maps around the country is a priority for President Obama,” added Lewis.
After a series of vacations to avoid the chaos revolving around his former officials, Obama has finally decided to come back in the political arena, in his first political event after leaving office. Other details also reveal that Obama is scheduled to speak at a health care event organized by the Wall Street firm, Cantor Fitzgerald, where he will be paid $400,000 to hold a speech at the event.
Many suspect now that the former president is back, he will be working on his shadow government, to undermine and eventually impeach President Donald Trump.
