Obama endorses Clinton after meeting with Sanders

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – President Barack Obama formally endorsed Hillary Clinton as the Democratic Party’s presumptive presidential nominee in a video released by the Clinton campaign.

In the video, Obama said he doesn’t think there has been anyone more qualified to hold the office.

He also thanked Sen. Bernie Sanders for bringing millions of new voters into the election process and for bringing issues like economic inequality and the influence of big money in politics into the spotlight.

Obama acknowledged the rivalry between Clinton and Sanders but urged their supporters to come together as a united Democratic Party.

“Embracing that message is going to help us win in November,” Obama said in the video. “But more importantly, it will make the Democratic Party stronger, and it will make America stronger.”

Obama’s public endorsement of Clinton came after he met with Sanders at the White House.

At a press conference following the meeting, Sanders made no mention of dropping out of the primary race.

He thanked Obama and Vice President Joe Biden for their impartiality throughout the primary process and said he will still compete in the Washington, D.C. primary on Tuesday, which is the last Democratic primary.

Sanders said he looks forward to meeting with Clinton in the near future to see how they can work together to defeat Republican presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump.

    Was Obama talking loud saying….IF YOU WANT SOME CHANGE… NOW IS THE TIME FOR A CHANGE WE CAN ALL BELIEVE IN? Then years later, he said… NOBODY SAID EVERYTHING COULD BE DONE OVERNIGHT….I hope Fil-Ams are not so naive about Democrats…
