Hillary Clinton Gets President Obama’s Endorsement

Now that Hillary Clinton secured the number of delegates needed to secure the Democratic nomination for President, the major endorsements are rolling in. On Thursday, President Obama announced via video his endorsement for his former Secretary of State.

In the video he states, “I don’t think there’s ever been someone so qualified to hold this office. She’s got the courage, the compassion, and the heart to get the job done…I have seen her judgment. I’ve seen her toughness.”

Folks seem surprised, but it was really only a matter of time before the President would announce he was backing Clinton’s campaign for office.

Accompanying, the video were photos of the two of them during Clinton’s time as a member of President Obama’s Cabinet, showing them at her swearing-in ceremony and in the Situation Room watching the operation which resulted in Osama bin Laden’s killing.

This endorsement came hours after the President met with Clinton’s Democratic opponent, Sen. Bernie Sanders. Even though Clinton secured the number of delegates to become the presumptive Democratic nominee, Sanders will continue his campaign until the Democratic convention in July.

And of course, Donald Trump wouldn’t be Donald Trump if he didn’t comment on the news.

But Clinton proved once again she doesn’t back down. 

This is going to be good.
