President Barack Obama may be married to one of the most influential women in the world, Michelle Obama, but when it comes to the individual who has impacted his role as Commander-in-Chief the most, the 55-year-old revealed presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, has been a major role in his success.
During an appearance at International University in Miami this week, the Honolulu native praised the former secretary of state’s work, disclosing she “made me a better president.”
“She understands policy. She understands how the world works. She understands that this stuff that we do, the challenges we face, aren’t abstract, they mean something to real people,” Obama said. “She doesn’t whine or complain or blame others or suggest everything is rigged when things aren’t going her way, she just works harder.”
Of course, this isn’t the first time the 44th and current President of the United States has sounded off on the Democratic candidate in a major way. A day earlier, at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, the father of two praised Clinton once more, saying, “You know what? She’s not flashy. She’s not going around spending all the time giving big stemwinders. And as a consequence, sometimes she’s underappreciated here at home. But she made me a better president.”
Up next, Obama plans on returning the favor by aiding in getting Clinton elected. On Monday, Nov. 7, Obama alongside Clinton will deliver one last takedown of GOP nominee Donald Trump before urging Pennsylvanians to make history on Tuesday, Nov. 8, by electing her the first-ever female president. According to reports, the Democratic nominee’s husband, former President Bill Clinton, daughter Chelsea Clinton, and first lady Michelle Obama will also be there to show their support.
