NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Former President Barack Obama endorsed Joe Biden on Tuesday.

In a video message, he named several reasons why he believes Biden is the candidate needed to defeat Trump.

"I’m proud to endorse my friend @JoeBiden for President of the United States. Let's go," Obama tweeted.

"One thing everybody has learned by now is that the republicans occupying the White House and the Senate, are not interested in progress," Obama says in the video.

The endorsement comes just a day after former rival Bernie Sanders also backed Biden.
