Hillary Clinton endorsed Joe Biden for president Tuesday in a tweet and in an appearance as the presumptive Democratic nominee's special guest at a virtual town hall.
"I am thrilled to be part of your campaign, to not only endorse you but help highlight a lot of the issues that are at stake in this presidential election," Clinton said at the virtual town hall. "I want to add my voice to the many who have endorsed you to be our president."
"Just think of what a difference it would make right now if we had a president who not only listened to the science, put facts over fiction, but brought us together, showed the kind of compassion and caring that we need from our president, and which Joe Biden has been exemplifying throughout his entire life," Clinton said.
Clinton teased the endorsement on Twitter:
I wish we had @JoeBiden's leadership in the Oval Office right now.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) April 28, 2020
Americans deserve a president who will manage the COVID-19 crisis with the compassion, competence, and respect for science we need to save lives and revive the economy.
