President Obama endorses Hillary Clinton for president. Obama disclosed his endorsement for the former Secretary of State in a video posted by Hillary’s campaign. 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.”
The video also shows Clinton and Obama during the time Hillary served as Secretary of State. In 2008 the two were head to head for the democratic nomination and now are campaigning alongside one another. Obama is set to campaign with Hillary next week in Wisconsin. Clinton took to social media to thank Obama for his support and republican candidate Donald Trump had a few words on the endorsement as well.
Watch the endorsement video below.

Obama just endorsed Crooked Hillary. He wants four more years of Obama—but nobody else does!
