Obama Close To Endorsing Clinton For Democratic Presidential Nominee: Media

While U.S. President Barack Obama has made remarks indicating a preference for Hillary Clinton, his former secretary of state, he has so far avoided a clear endorsement and has focused his remarks about the campaign on blasting Donald Trump. A senior White House official would not comment on timing of any endorsement but said Obama is eager to campaign where he might be useful. The expected Obama endorsement, reported by The New York Times and CNN, would come as a welcome boost to Clinton and to Democrats concerned that the party needs to turn its attention fully to campaigning against Republican nominee Donald Trump.
