US President Barack Obama, campaigning for fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton for the US Presidential election 2016, poked fun at Donald Trump. Obama cited the example of Trump’s campaign manager taking away his Twitter account over the weekend. The US President then said that if his closest advisors do not trust him with handling his own Twitter account, how can the country trust him with the nuclear codes. Obama spoke to the people of Philadelphia, on the last day of campaigning, before the Presidential election takes place and appealed by saying that he was betting with the people and betting for their tomorrow.
He urged the people of Philadelphia to not cast their vote for someone who did not respect the country’s constitution. Speaking of Clinton, he said that the former First lady and the Secretary of State was strong and tough like the people of America. He said that Clinton understood that the service of the government was not for her but for the people of America. He said that the people did not have to go out of their way to vote against someone. They already had someone as “outstanding” as Hillary Clinton, he added.
Meanwhile, the latest Fox news poll has shown Hillary Clinton to be gaining a lead of 4% over her opponent Donald Trump. Clinton and Trump both sit pretty at 48%-44% overall. Clinton has vastly led in most polls over the last year. Although Trump did manage to catch up with her after his other Republican opponents dropped out. Although, at one point in this year, Hillary Clinton did manage a massive 14 point lead over Trump following the leaked footages of him making sexist and lewd comments on women surfaced. He was then accused of sexual assault by several women. Clinton’s biggest problems this election were her Democrat opponent being Bernie Sanders and the use of private servers to send classified information; something which was dragged all through the course of the campaign and presided over the three Presidential debate. And with the FBI deciding to reopen her email case a week before the elections, Donald went about leading the polls at one point at one time. Although now the FBI has declared Clinton clean, the scales have shifted in her favour, again.
