Former Presidents Obama and Clinton Raise Millions for Joe Biden's Campaign

In a significant show of Democratic unity, former U.S. Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton threw their support behind current President Joe Biden, helping to raise a substantial sum for his campaign.
The trio made a grand appearance at a large fundraising event held on Thursday night at the Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan, New York. The event, which also featured performances by several music stars, proved to be a financial success, with Biden's campaign team announcing that they had gathered over $26 million.

The fundraising gala, however, was not without its challenges. Protests against the U.S. government's policies in the Middle East shadowed the event, with disruptions by hecklers occurring multiple times during the speeches of these prominent Democrats. Additionally, demonstrators took to the streets outside the venue.

Attendance at the event was remarkable, with ticket prices ranging from $225 to a staggering half a million dollars per ticket. President Obama made a notable entrance, flying from Washington to New York aboard the Air Force One, with Biden by his side, while Clinton arrived at the event separately.

The gathering also included a panel discussion that featured the three politicians. They deliberated on an array of subjects, including democracy, life in the White House, international conflicts, and the complex decisions made during their presidencies.

During the event, Obama and Clinton praised President Biden's tenure, while Biden himself took the opportunity to criticize his Republican challenger, former President Donald Trump, who intends to run against him in the upcoming November election. Biden cautioned about Trump's denial of climate change, his relationships with autocrats around the world, and his efforts to restrict fundamental rights.
