Barack Obama on Wednesday urged his countrymen to vote for Hillary Clinton to the White House, saying that “Show the world we still believe in the promise of a great nation,” the president urged both delegates and a national audience which is in real danger of voting for someone he dubbed a “home-grown demagogue”.
“America is already great,” insisted Obama. “The American dream is something no wall will ever contain.” He added. Denouncing the real danger posed to him the Republican Donald Trump, who poses as “self-proclaimed savior” of the country, the President of the United States praised the solid experience of its former chief diplomat.
Under thunderous applause, the first black president in the history of the United States said he wants to pass the baton to “Hillary” on January 20, 2017, the first woman in history to reach the White House.
“I can say with confidence that no man or woman has been described Hillary Clinton for the presidency of the United States of America,” he told the 44th president of the United States, who will step down in six months to 55 years.
America has changed, Obama said, but its values had not, adding: “We don’t fear the future; we shape it. We embrace it, as one people, stronger together than we are on our own. That’s what Hillary Clinton understands – this fighter, this stateswoman, this mother and grandmother, this public servant, this patriot – that’s the America she’s fighting for.”
