Obama turned 60 on Wednesday and his former vice president, Biden, shared a photograph of the two exchanging a high five.
The White House said earlier this week that Biden would not be attending Obama’s birthday party on Martha’s Vineyard this weekend. Obama was planning a huge bash of A-list friends at his home but has since limited the guest list to just family and close friends amid COVID-19 concerns.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on if the president has called Obama for his birthday on Wednesday.

Of all of your accomplishments, I know that being a present, loving father to our girls tops them all.
