Tuesday, 8 November, 2016 - 09:00

US President Barack Obama and Democrat Hilary Clinton held the last joint meeting before the election of a new leader of the country. The venue for this event was chosen the city of Philadelphia (Pennsylvania).

As usual, Obama and his wife Michelle Obama asked gathered people to vote for Hilary Clinton in their usual very emotional, energetic and even a little bit of aggressive manner.

However, as U.S. Rep. Tom Marino, a Republican from Pennsylvania said: «As the Clintons close the final day of campaigning here in Pennsylvania, it is fitting that Hillary holds an event with President Obama because she represents a third Obama term. As a career Washington insider, Hillary Clinton has supported trade deals like NAFTA that have decimated working families in Pennsylvania and weakened America abroad. And through it all, she and Bill traded access for tens of millions in donations from foreign officials and six-figure speaking fees».

Moreover, in the background of published letters by the WikiLeaks, Clinton’s authority has been much undermined.

In turn, Donald Trump spoke at a rally in Scranton (Pennsylvania). After his speech, his campaign is confident that now he has the upper hand in the state. Moreover, Clinton's electorate has reduced over the past week.
