Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is getting some help from his “former boss” Barack Obama as he looks to fill his campaign coffers and unify the Democratic Party ahead of the November election.
The former president and Mr Biden will appear together Tuesday, June 23 for a “virtual grassroots fundraiser,” the former vice president announced on Twitter.
It will be the first time the two have appeared together since Mr Obama endorsed Mr Biden in April.

Mr Biden’s tweet linked to a campaign fundraising page and to a form for those who want to ask a question of the two Democrats.
The announcement on Monday came hours after Mr Biden said that his campaign and associated Democratic groups had raised $81 million (£64 million) in May — his strongest-ever fundraising haul.
President Donald Trump’s campaign has yet to release its fundraising total for the month.
