Barack Obama denies to take position in Biden’s Cabinet, says ‘Michelle would leave me’

Joe Biden, the US President-elect 2020, is preparing to become the 46th president on 20th January, defeating the 45th US President Donald Trump at the polls.

Barack Obama, the US President from 2009 to 2017, when asked if he would consider a cabinet position, he reverted, “There are some things I would not be doing because Michelle would leave me. She’d be like, what? You’re doing what?”


He further added, upon asking that will he advise Biden, “He doesn’t need my advice, and I will help him in any ways that I can. Now, I’m not planning to suddenly work on the White House staff or something.”

Obama in his book writes, “My career in politics, with its prolonged absences, had made it even tougher for his wife to pursue her own law career. More than once Michelle had decided not to pursue an opportunity that excited her but would have demanded too much time away from the girls.”

He said, “With my election [as US president] she’d been forced to give up a job with real impact for a role [as the first lady] that – in its original design, at least – was far too small for her gifts.”

Obama said, “We went through our rough patches in the White House, as she has written about and talked as well. But I tell you that the thing that I think we were good about was talking stuff through, never losing fundamental love and respect for each other, and prioritising our kids.”
