President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama has endorsed presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton.
President Obama made endorsement via a web video on Thursday. He congratulated Hillary for making history as the first female presumptive Democratic nominee.
The video which was shared via Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton’s YouTube channel had Obama declaring that Hillary is most qualified to hold the office of president of the United States.
President Obama said:
“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.
“She’s got the courage, the compassion, and the heart to get the job done. I want those of you who have been with me since the beginning of this incredible journey to be the first to know that I’m with her.
“I am fired up. And I can’t wait to get out there and campaign with Hillary.”
Obama took the opportunity to highlight Hillary’s strength of character in her willingness to serve in his government as Secretary of State, even after losing the Democratic nominating contest to him in 2008.
He also thanked everybody who voted and worked hard for the Democratic candidates, admitting that it has been a hard-fought race so far.
Obama also used the medium to appreciate Senator Bernie Sanders for his efforts which saw thousands of newly registered as well as young voters cast their ballot for the Democrats. Something which he believes will help the party win the presidential elections in November.
President Obama will be campaigning with Hillary Clinton next week in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Hillary took to her twitter account on Thursday to thank Obama for his endorsement:
“Honored to have you with me, @POTUS. I’m fired up and ready to go!”
