• Obama to campaign with Clinton; Trump shrinks gap


    WASHINGTON, DC: President Barack Obama will campaign with presumptive Democratic White House nominee Hillary Clinton for the first time next on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila), as a new poll shows a tightening race with Republican Donald Trump. The Democratic pair is scheduled to visit Charlotte, in the swing state of North Carolina, where they will “discuss building on the progress we’ve made and their vision for an America that is stronger together,” Clinton’s campaign said in a statement Wednesday. Their debut joint campaign appearance for the 2016 election had been scheduled for June 15 in Wisconsin, but was postponed due to the massacre at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida—the worst mass shooting in US history. Obama endorsed Clinton on June 9 after months of assiduously avoiding tipping the scales of the Democratic presidential primaries.
