A source told CNN that Obama has already started offering up advice to the Presidential hopefuls, in an emphatic attempt to take down Trump in the next election and to turn the tide on today's racially charged policies.

The sit-downs have been casual, according to the sources, focusing mainly on how the potential candidates should counteract and respond to President Trump's combative rhetoric. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), former Vice President Joe Biden, former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick (D), former New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu (D), former Missouri Senate candidate Jason Kander (D), and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D). Kirsten Gillibrand and former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe among them - who have not yet discussed campaign plans with Obama.

And Politico reported that Obama has remained in close contact with Biden in the months since the pair left office, with the two meeting in-person in January.

He has reportedly met with contenders including Sen. John McCain, who Obama beat in the 2008 presidential election, and Arizona Sen.

According to the report, the former president held one-on-one sessions with former Vice President Joe Biden, Sens.

Since Republicans won the White House and retained control of both houses, many Democrats have struggled to point to a leader in the Democratic Party, and some continue to point to Obama.

In his meeting with Sanders, Obama and the Vermont Senator discussed their different visions of the Democratic Party's future, reportedly debating the gaps between idealism and practicality. Troubled about the money Obama was getting to speak at a Wall Street investment firm, Warren voiced her concerns to the former president, and the two met twice: in April this year and in spring 2017. Obama is, however, planning to hit the stump for down-ballot Democrats ahead of November's midterms.
