President Obama endorses Hillary Clinton, urges party unity

Posted By on Thu, Jun 9, 2016 at 2:09 PM


President Obama's endorsement of Hillary Clinton was posted on her Facebook page today. It included praise for opponent Bernie Sanders and a call for the party to unite in November.

Sanders' initial reaction: Silence.

He later said he'd spoken with Clinton and he intended to work with her to defeat Donald Trump, but he also said he'd continue to work against control of the country by an oligarchic few.

Elizabeth Warren is set to endorse Clinton, too.
