President Obama Endorses Hillary Clinton

“I’m with her.”

Shortly after an hourlong meeting with Bernie Sanders at the White House Thursday, President Barack Obama released a video announcing his endorsement of Hillary Clinton for president. “I’m with her,” he says in the video. “I am fired up and I cannot wait to get out there and campaign for Hillary.”

Obama also paid tribute to Sanders, dismissing the idea that the primary would leave Democrats divided and touting his success at bringing young voters to the polls. “They’re both patriots who love this country and they share a vision for an America that we all believe in,” Obama said.
