Barack Obama officially endorses Hillary Clinton

The White House said US President Barack Obama’s formal endorsement of Hillary Clinton for president did not come as a surprise to her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders.

After meeting with Obama, the senator from Vermont warned that Donald Trump would be a “disaster” as president.

“I look forward to meeting with her in the near future to see how we can work together to defeat Donald Trump and to create a government which represents all of us and not just the one percent,” said Sanders.

The former first lady, former secretary of state and former New York senator welcomed Obama’s endorsement.

She said it “means the world” that her former Democratic rival has her back in the 2016 campaign.
