(Newser) – President Obama officially endorsed Hillary Clinton for president on Thursday, Politico reports. According to ABC News, the president made the endorsement via a video posted by the Clinton campaign. “I don’t think there’s ever been someone so qualified to hold this office," Obama says in his endorsement. “Honored to have you with me, @POTUS. I'm fired up and ready to go!” Clinton tweeted following the endorsement. Obama plans to campaign with Clinton next week in Wisconsin. The president met with Bernie Sanders earlier on Thursday, leading to Sanders saying he's willing to work with Clinton to make sure Trump doesn't get elected (though he's not yet ready to drop out of the race).
