The former commander-in-chief has been quietly meeting with several Democrats mulling a run for the White House in 2020, giving advice on how to campaign in the age of President Trump, according to multiple reports.

Some Democrats have accused Obama of not doing enough to promote the party, but several people close to the ex-president told Politico he is in an all-hands-on-deck mode for 2020, resulting in at least 10 meetings at his Washington, D.C., office with potential presidential contenders.

Cory Booker, former Vice President Joe Biden, former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, former New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, former Attorney General Eric Holder, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, ex-Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Peter Buttigieg.
