He called on the party faithful - and by extension, its presidential candidates - to be mindful that Democrats, independents and even moderate Republicans "are not driven by the same views that are reflected on certain, you know, left-leaning Twitter feeds, or the activist wing of our party".
"The agenda that we have is an agenda supported by the vast majority of working people", he said.
Former President Barack Obama used an appearance at a high-dollar donor confab on Friday to urge the field of Democratic presidential hopefuls to "pay some attention to where voters actually are", warning them about going so far on certain policies that they become out of step with voters.
But as he spoke alongside Stacey Abrams, Democrats' 2018 nominee for governor of Georgia, Obama appeared to critique the candidates pushing major change in the Democratic primary - such as Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren - as well as former Vice President Joe Biden, who has hugged Obama's legacy close on the campaign trail, even as Obama says he's eager for the party to move beyond the markers he set.
He added: "I am assured that at the live of the task we are in a position to have a candidate who has been examined and can also very effectively be ready to proudly elevate the Democratic banner, and we're going to ought to unify around that".
During his almost hourlong remarks on Friday, Mr. Obama offered only one clear endorsement, though not exactly the one many Democratic donors in the room wanted to hear.
Mr Sanders, who describes himself as a democratic socialist and progressive, laughed and said: "Well, it depends on what you mean by tear down the system".
But the 44th president of the United States has, unsurprisingly, ideas about how his party should approach the election to ensure that Trump is limited to just one term in office.
"Let's stop tearing each other down, let's stop drawing artificial lines", he said.

"Their vision for the future of the country is much better and will be more popular than Donald Trump's", Mr Castro, former housing secretary in the Obama administration, said. And still others are taking distance from his record to stand out.
Political operative Peter Daou, who took credit for launching the hashtag, said: "I launched the #TooFarLeft tag because I've had it with Republicans, media elites, and corporate Dems enabling fascists while denigrating those who seek economic and social justice as 'too far left.' I'd like to ONCE hear them complain America is too far right".
The Democratic race is still largely up in the air even as the first of the state-by-state votes that will decide which of the contenders challenges Mr Trump for the White House looms in Iowa in February.
In recent days Deval Patrick, the two-time former governor of MA, entered the field amid speculation that former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg may follow suit.
Some Democrats are concerned that Mr Biden, a moderate who was vice-president to Mr Obama, will struggle to beat Mr Trump, prompting a flurry of latecomers to join the race.
