US President Barack Obama has
strongly endorsed Hillary Clinton, saying she is more qualified to be
the president of than or Obama.

The
former secretary of state is a “leader with real plans to break down
barriers, blast through glass ceilings, and widen the circle of
opportunity to every single American, the next president of the United
States, Hillary Clinton,” Obama said in a speech at the packed
Democratic National Convention center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on
Wednesday night.
“That’s the Hillary I know. That’s the Hillary
I’ve come to admire. And that’s why I can say with confidence there has
never been a man or a woman — not me, not Bill, nobody — more qualified
than Hillary Clinton to serve as president of the United States of
America,” he added.
He said “nothing truly prepares you for the demands of the Oval Office, but Hillary’s been in the room.”
“I
know Hillary won’t relent until ISIL is destroyed. She’ll finish the
job – and she’ll do it without resorting to torture, or banning entire
religions from entering our country. She is fit to be the next commander
in chief,” he said.
Obama went on to say that “we’re going to carry Hillary to victory this fall, because that’s what the moment demands.”
“This
year, in this election, I’m asking you to join me — to reject
cynicism, reject fear, to summon what’s best in us, to elect Hillary
Clinton as the next president of the United States,” Obama said in his
concluding remarks.

commenting on Clinton’s choice for vice president, Tim Kaine, Obama
said, “He will be a great vice president. And he’ll make Hillary a
better president, just like my dear friend and brother Joe Biden has
made me a better president.”
Obama also denounced Republican
presidential nominee Donald Trump, saying “America is already great.
America is already strong. And I promise you, our strength, our
greatness, does not depend on Donald Trump.”
“Our power doesn’t
come from some self-declared savior promising that he alone can restore
order as long as we do things his way. We don’t look to be ruled,” he
stated.
“Ronald Reagan called America a shining city on a hill,”
Obama recalled. “Donald Trump calls it a divided crime scene that only
he can fix.”
