Former President Obama spoke candidly Thursday to a room of 100 donors who paid top dollar to see him speak, telling the room that “everybody needs to chill out” about the differences among the 2020 Democratic candidates.

“Everybody needs to chill out about the candidates,” Obama said to a crowd of about 100 Democratic donors who had paid thousands to listen to his talk in Silicon Valley, according to the Mercury News. “But gin up about the prospect of rallying behind whoever emerges from this process and making sure we’re hitting the ground running.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Speaking with Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez following the fifth installment of Democratic debates Wednesday night, Obama said he doesn’t care if voters don’t think the eventual nominee is the “perfect” candidate who agrees with them on all important issues.

Kendall Karson with ABC News reported more of Obama’s comments in tweets. She wrote:

…Obama to party donors in California about anxieties over the crowded field: “To summarize, everybody needs to chill out about the candidates but gin up about the prospect of rallying behind whoever emerges from this process.”

Obama clarifies his warning to Dems from last week: “The average voter…they don’t feel that things are working well. But they’re also nervous about changes that might take away what little they have and so there’s always a kind of battle in politics between hope and fear.”

Obama says of the 2020 field’s diverse candidates: “We have a number of women candidates, and we have one gay candidate, and those candidates will have barriers if they win the nomination…just like I did.”

“Why I am always suspicious of purity tests during elections, because you know what, the country is complicated,” Obama tells a room full of Democratic donors.
