Obama delivers fiery call to elect Hillary: ‘She will work. She will deliver. She won’t just tweet.’
During the final hours heading into Election Day, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican candidate Donald Trump held their respective campaign rallies. But the tune of each rally was different.
The Clinton crowd maintained the spirit of positivity and a hopeful future, whereas Trump continued to rip into his opponent, making his final anger-inducing speeches to his supporters.
President Obama made a final plea to voters during a Clinton rally in Philadelphia. “I know it’s been a long campaign. There’s been a lot of noise, and a lot of distraction,” he said.
“At times, it’s felt more like a reality show, or even a parody,” Obama continued. “But tomorrow, tomorrow, Philadelphia, the choice you face when you step into that voting booth could not be clearer and could not be more serious.”
Speaking to the qualifications of both candidates on various issues, like the economy, health care, climate change, and foreign policy, Obama explained, “Don’t take my word for it, listen to the Republicans who refuse to supporte him. He lacks a basic understanding of the world.”
Touching on Trump losing his Twitter privileges, Obama joked “Over the weekend, his campaign took away his Twitter account because he’s erratic. If his closest advisors won’t trust him to tweet, why would any of us trust him with the nuclear codes?”
“You don’t have to just vote against someone, you have someone outstanding to vote for in Hillary Clinton,” Obama exclaimed.
Obama made the case for Clinton during his final campaign speech. On the various important promises Clinton has made along the way, the President said, “She will work. She will deliver. She won’t just tweet.”
