Biden also said that his former boss is "doing enough for our campaign, he'll be out on the trail."

The Democrat did not confirm when or where Obama would join the trail.

Obama publicly endorsed Biden in April, after Senator Bernie Sanders dropped out of the race.

The former president has been vocal in his backing of the Vice President, who served for eight years under Obama, and has said "so much is at stake in this election."

In a video released on Tuesday, he said: "History shows that the easiest way to make sure that you and your friends vote is to make a plan. And when it comes to voting this year, having a plan has never been more important."

The Democratic party are trying to avoid a repeat of the 2016 election and are encouraging voters to run to the polls to support Biden.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama has also been vocal about her support for Biden.

Last week, she issued a shocking blast on YouTube, urging Americans to vote for Joe Biden because Donald Trump "isn't up to the job."

Detailing her own experience as a black woman in the USA, Obama urged viewers to "search your hearts, and your conscience, and then vote for Joe Biden like your lives depend on it."

"We have all been working so hard to keep ourselves and our families afloat — and we deserve a president who will do the same," she concluded.
