President Obama to endorse Clinton

White House officials say President Barack Obama’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton could be announced within the next few days. Obama will most likely make the announcement sometime after the Democratic primaries on Tuesday. Once the endorsement is solidified, Obama plans to actively campaign against Donald Trump. White House and Clinton campaign aides are currently working on the timing of announcement. According to White House spokesman Josh Earnest, the president is well aware of the math in terms of the number of delegates secured by Clinton. “Certainly somebody who claims a majority of the pledged and superdelegates has a strong case to make,” Earnest said, adding that once voters weigh in Tuesday, “we may be in a position where we have much greater sense of what the outcome is likely to be.”
