Obama Backs Clinton Meanwhile Sanders Ready To Talk To Clinton
Today President Barack Obama endorsed Hillary Clinton, to hopefully replace him in the oval office in 2017. The President formally endorsed Clinton for president in a video released just an hour after he met at the White House on Thursday with her rival, Bernie Sanders.
“I know how hard this job can be, that’s why I know Hillary will be so good at it. In fact, I don’t think there’s ever been someone so qualified to hold this office,” he said in the video, which was posted on YouTube and the Clinton campaign website.
The process of bringing the Democratic together has begun and while he is not there yet Se. Sanders is expected to join the fight to defeat Republican Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.
You can expect plenty more endorsements to come this week from Vice President Joe Biden, to the darling of the Progressive movement Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). Sen Warren is viewed by many a real contender to be Clinton’s vice president.
Meanwhile, Sanders on Thursday emerged from a White House meeting with President Obama and vowed to work together with Hillary Clinton to defeat Donald Trump in November.
Warning that Trump would make a “disaster” leader of the country, the Vermont senator — who has pledged to continue his White House bid even after Clinton became the Democratic Party’s presumptive presidential nominee — said he would “work as hard as I can to make sure that Donald Trump does not become president of the United States.”
“I look forward to meeting with (Clinton) in the near future to see how we can work together to defeat Donald Trump and to create a government which represents all of us and not just the 1 percent,” Sanders said.
The senator thanked both Obama and Vice President Joe Biden for showing “impartiality” during the course of the Democratic campaign.
“They said in the beginning is that they would not put their thumb on the scales and they kept their word and I appreciate that very, very much,” Sanders said.
Sanders will hold a rally in Washington tonight and continue his campaign in the District where the campaign season ends with their June 14th primary.
