WASHINGTON (NEWS10) – According to the Hillary Clinton campaign, President Barack Obama endorsed her on Thursday.

Hillary Clinton says she is honored to have President Obama with her.

In an online video, Obama calls on Democrats to unify behind his former secretary of state’s bid and “build on the progress” of his eight years in the White House.

“I want you to be the first to know that I’m with her,” he says.

Obama is also praising Democratic primary candidate Bernie Sanders for engaging young voters and highlighting the issues of income inequality and money in politics. “Embracing that message is going to help us win in November,” says Obama.

Clinton and Obama will campaign together in Green Bay, Wisconsin, on June 15.

In his endorsement, President Obama says “I don’t there’s ever been someone so qualified to hold this office.”

Earlier on Thursday, President Obama and Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders met at the White House. Sanders said he would work with Clinton to stop Presumptive Republican Nominee Donald Trump.
