President Joe Biden was reportedly thankful for the Lincoln Project, a fundraising powerhouse that unleashed an onslaught of anti-Trump ads, after the 2020 election.

After he defeated his predecessor, Donald Trump, in November 2020, Biden placed a call to co-founder Steve Schmidt to express gratitude for the group helping him get elected, a source told Politico .

The Washington Examiner reached out to the Lincoln Project for comment. Politico said the White House did not comment.

The tidbit appeared in a report published Sunday about how the anti-Trump group has fallen out of favor with a wide swath of people.

Moderate Republicans and Never Trumpers, the report says, did not take kindly to co-founder Rick Wilson urging Trump to run again in 2024.

“It’s not that I want [Trump] to be here, I’d love for him to be eaten by a shark tomorrow,” Wilson said in defense of his comments. “I want Trump to run to destroy the people who are more sophisticated than Trump. I want to use Trump’s psychological problems to weaken him because I think the most dangerous thing we face is Trump with an Ivy League degree. All the abrasive authoritarianism and nationalism and none of the obvious deficits."

The Lincoln Project has grappled with other controversies over the past couple of years, including one involving the group's handling of sexual misconduct allegations against one of its co-founders, John Weaver, and a tiki torch stunt that rocked the Virginia governor's race this year.

I hope, I am not the only one thinking that putting a person that needs to retire not be the president. Yes, this includes trump. We need term limits for congress. It can not be your career.
