Obama on Voting For Clinton: "Not Everything Is Supposed To Be Inspiring"

|

President Obama spoke to MSNBC's Al Sharpton about voting for Hillary Clinton Sunday morning.

"Everything we have done over the past eight years will be reversed under a Trump presidency," Obama said. "And everything will be sustained and built on under a Hillary Clinton presidency. This vote is as important as any of those other two votes [in 2008 and 2012]. And being able to maintain a progressive agenda that keeps 20 million people with health insurance, hopefully gets the next 20 million. Where we're working on issues like criminal justice reform, and somebody who actually wants to see a reinvigorated civil rights office in the Jusice Dept., that wants to make sure things like early childhood education is put in place, so our young people can all get the benefits of a great education at the earliest stages all the way through college. You can't say you care about those things, and then suggest somehow that you're feeling cynical, or you're not sufficiently inspired."

"Michelle and I, we talk over the dinner table with our daughters. Not everything is supposed to be inspiring. You just do what you have to do. And one of the things you have to do right now is vote for Hillary Clinton."
