PRESIDENT OBAMA'S SPEECH AGAINST DONALD TRUMP AT THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY CONVENTION IN PHILADELPHI
President Obama said 'the American dream is something no wall can ever contain'
Obama said 'America, you have vindicated that hope these past eight years. And now I'm ready to pass the baton and do my part as a private citizen,' he said. This year, in this election, I'm asking you to join me- to cynicism, reject fear, to summon what's best in us; to elect Hillary Clinton as the next President of the United States, and show the world we still believe in the promise of this great nation,'
The President also slams Donald Trump over his plans to build a wall on the border with Mexico.
'Hillary knows we can insist on a lawful and orderly immigration system while still seeing striving students and their toiling parents as loving families, not criminals or rapists' he said.
'She knows their dream is consequentially American and American Dream is something no wall will ever contain.
President Obama said Trump is fanning the flame of 'resentment, and blame, and anger and hate.' Clinton on the other hand 'keeps her cool, and treats everybody with respect.'
'And no matter how daunting the odds,' no matter how much people try to knock her down, she never, ever, quits,' he said.
Obama also praised the selection of Tim Kaine by Hillary Clinton to be vice- president
'Tim Kaine is as good a man, as humble and as committed a public servant as anybody that I know. I know his family. I love Anne. I love their kids. He will be a great vice president.' Obama said.
President Obama added: 'He will make Hillary a better President- just like my dear friend and brother, Joe Biden, has made me a better President.'
Obama said: 'Hillary has got her share of critics. She has been caricatured by the right and by some on the left. She has been accused of everything you can imagine - and some things you cannot. But she knows that's what happens when you're under a microscope for 40 years.
'She knows that sometimes during those 40 years she's made mistakes- just like I have, just like we all do,' he said. 'That's what happens when we try.'
