President Obama Endorses Hillary Clinton for President
After Hillary Clinton essentially wrapped up the Democratic nomination for president on Tuesday night, President Barack Obama quickly announced his endorsement for Clinton in a video message posted online Thursday morning. “I don’t think there’s ever been someone so qualified to hold this office,” Obama said.
“Look, I know how hard this job can be. That’s why I know Hillary will be so good at it,” he added. Along with officially endorsing Clinton, President Obama also sought to help unite a Democratic party that some view has become divided over the party’s two major nominees: Clinton, and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. “[Sanders] has run an incredible campaign. I had a great meeting with him this week, and I thanked him for shining a spotlight on issues like economic inequality and the outsized influence of money in our politics and bringing young people into the process. Embracing that message is going to help [Democrats] win in November … but more importantly it will make America stronger.” After the announcement, Clinton took to Twitter to thank the President for his support.
Presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump chimed in on the announcement in his usual off-the-cuff style.
Honored to have you with me, @POTUS. I'm fired up and ready to go! -H— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) June 9, 2016
Clinton, however, was having none of it and won the Twitter debate.
Obama just endorsed Crooked Hillary. He wants four more years of Obama—but nobody else does!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 9, 2016
