First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, came out in support of presidential nominee Hillary Clinton during the Democratic campaign trail in North Carolina on Thursday. Obama, who enjoys much support among the masses, listed Clinton's accomplishments and explained why there could not be a better candidate for the presidential seat this year.
A crowd of 11,000 attended the event at Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum and cheered both Clinton and Obama.
"Hillary doesn't play...She has more experience and exposure to the presidency than any candidate in our lifetime – yes, more than Barack, more than Bill – so she is absolutely ready to be commander in chief on Day 1. And yes... she happens to be a woman," Obama said during the campaign trail.
Obama, in her speech, said that US citizens had a moral choice to make this election of selecting one of two visions. She said while Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's vision was "of hopelessness and despair, a vision of a country that is weak and divided, a country in chaos, where other citizens are a threat", Clinton's vision is that of a nation which is "powerful, vibrant and strong, big enough to have a place for all of us."
The Republican presidential nominee also heaped praises on Obama calling her "our most amazing" first lady. She praised Obama's exceptional speech at the Democratic national convention in July and said that the first couple has "dazzled the world."
"Seriously, is there anyone more inspiring than Michelle Obama?" Clinton said while concluding her speech.
The former first lady and the current one presented a strong unit at the campaign trail by putting aside their past differences when Clinton ran against Barack Obama for the presidential seat. Reaffirming their friendship, Michelle Obama during her speech said, "People wonder if Hillary Clinton is my friend. Yes, she is my friend."
