President Obama Just Gave His Last Campaign Speech for Hillary and It Was Amazing

“America, I’m betting on you.”


President Barack Obama just made his final campaign pitch for Hillary Clinton at an energetic election eve rally in Philadelphia. In a roughly 18-minute speech, Obama emphasized that, even after a turbulent and sometimes divisive eight years in the White House, he still believed in voters’ capacity for hope, and he urged them to turn out to vote for Clinton: “She will work, she will deliver, she won’t just tweet.”

“I’m betting that America will reject a politics of resentment and a politics of blame,” he said. “I’m betting that tomorrow, you will reject fear, and you will choose hope. I’m betting that the wisdom, decency, and generosity of the American people will once again win the day—and that’s a bet that I’ve never, ever lost.”

Watch the full speech above.
