Obama Set to Endorse Joe Biden After Months of Withholding Support
Former president set to step off sidelines of election race with new video
Fox News reported that a source familiar with the situation revealed that an endorsement video from Obama will be released on Tuesday.
When another source was asked about Obama's endorsement for Biden, they said: "stay tuned."
Obama has been notably reluctant to back his former vice president which raised awkward questions about their relationship.
Some have suggested the former president was "embarrassed" by Biden's frequent gaffes.
The anticipated video comes days after Sen. Bernie Sanders endorsed the former vice president.
"We are in a terrible moment, an unprecedented moment, and I know we share the understand that we have to go forward, right now and out of this, in an unprecedented way to address the terrible pain that so many of our fellow Americans are feeling," Sanders said.
"So, today, I am asking all Americans, I'm asking every Democrat, I'm asking every Independent, I'm asking a lot of Republicans to come together in this campaign to support your candidacy, which I endorse," Sanders added.
"To make certain that we defeat somebody who I believe, and I’m speaking just for myself now, is the most dangerous president in the modern history of this country."

Only last month, Biden was accused of sexual assault by a former staffer, Tara Reade, who alleged that she was attacked and sexually violated by former vice president 1993.
Reade made the allegation against Biden during an interview with journalist and podcaster Katie Harper, who released an audio clip of the conversation on Wednesday.
But a recent New York Times "investigation" into Biden concluded that there is "no pattern" of sexual misconduct concerning the Democratic presidential candidate.
Published Sunday, the left-leaning news outlet did a “deep dive” investigation into allegations of a serious sexual assault made against Biden recently by his former staffer, Tara Reade.
In what can only be explained as an effort to clear Biden of allegations that he sexually assaulted Reade back in the mid-1990s, the NYT determined the ex-VP is innocent of any wrongdoing.
