WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former President Barack Obama is scheduled to campaign for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden in Philadelphia next week ahead of the Nov. 3 election against President Donald Trump, the Biden campaign said.

The campaign said additional details will be released later. The popular former president criticized Trump in a podcast this week as an “accelerant” of misinformation.
