On Tuesday, President Barack Obama returned to the campaign trail on behalf of Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine. During his speech in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the president spent as much time criticizing Republican Donald Trump as he did expressing his confidence in Clinton. Obama attacked Trump’s divisive claims and attacked his new-found dedication to working people. “This guy who spent 70 years on this earth showing no concern for working people — this guy’s suddenly going to be your champion?” he asked the crowd. He then spoke about his trust in Clinton’s judgement and confidence that she has a better vision for the future saying, “This is not the usual choice between parties and policies and left and right. This is more fundamental. This is a fundamental choice about who we are as a people. This is a choice about the very meaning of America.” A video of the president’s speech is below.

On Thursday, Hillary Rodham Clinton gave a speech at Case Western Reserve University as a part of a “Commit to Vote” event where she outlined parts of her campaign platform. She took the opportunity to criticize Ohio Governor John Kasich for signing a bill that bans rape-crisis centers from providing information about abortions. She criticized other Republican candidates for being anti-choice and against groups such as Planned Parenthood and organizations that provide women’s health services. She said, “I would like these Republican candidates to look the mom in the eye who caught her breast cancer early because she was able to get a screening for cancer or the teenager who didn’t get pregnant because she has access to contraception. Or anyone who has ever been protected by an HIV test.”
A video from today’s event will be posted when/if available.
Tomorrow, Clinton head to Minneapolis, Minnesota. In the meantime, follow Clinton on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
