President Barack Obama is ready to go on the campaign trail for his party’s nominee, a White House source told CNN.

The president has chosen to remain on the sidelines during the Democratic primaries, but the source said he is anxious to “get people fired up” about the election — and defeating presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump — once his party has a nominee.

The source said the president will “explode onto the scene” once there is a Democratic nominee because he “knows his power” to fire up the party’s base.

“It’s driving him crazy” to wait, the source added.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Tuesday that the president will deliver a speech Wednesday during his visit to Elkhart, Indiana, regarding the state of the economy. The remarks, Earnest added, will be “mindful of the political backdrop.”

Earnest said the president “understands that his successor will have some important decisions to make about whether or not we are going build on this progress, are we going to build on this momentum, or are we going to tear it down?”

“And there is a pretty clear choice to be made if you take a look at the policies that are being advocated by the two parties,” Earnest added.

Neither of the remaining Democratic presidential candidates have yet secured the requisite 2,383 delegates necessary to receive the party’s nomination.
