Obama Officially Endorses Clinton for President

Filed under: English — sunnyson/손인선 @ 6:05 pm

U.S. President Barack Obama has officially endorsed Hillary Clinton, his former secretary of state, for president.
버락 오바마 미 대통령은 이전 그의 국무장관이었던 힐러리 클린턴의 대통령으로의 공개적인 지지를 밝혔다.

Obama gave his endorsement in a video published online.
오바마는 온라인으로 배포된 비디오를 통하여 지지를 표하였다.

“I want to congratulate Hillary Clinton on making history as the presumptive Democratic nominee for president of the United States.”
“나는 미 대통령 선거에서 사실상의 민주당 대선 후보로서 역사를 만들어 가고 있는 힐러리 클린턴에게 축하를 드립니다.”

In the video, he said he knows “how hard this job can be,” and that he knows Hillary “will be so good at it.”
이 비디오에서, 그는 “이 일이 얼마나 힘든지”를 알고 있다고, 그리고 힐러리가 “이 일을 잘할 것”을 알고 있다고 말하였다.

“In fact, I don’t think there’s ever been someone so qualified to hold this office,” he said. Specifically, Obama said Clinton has the “courage, compassion and heart to get the job done.

“I am fired up and I cannot wait to get out there and campaign for Hillary,” Obama said.

Clinton responded to the endorsement in an interview with Bloomberg Politics.

“It just means so much to have a strong, substantive endorsement from the president. Obviously I value his opinion a great deal personally,” she said. “It’s just such a treat because over the years of knowing each other, we’ve gone from fierce competitors to true friends.”

With a high approval rating of over 50 percent, Obama is seen as a valuable campaign tool for Clinton. The Clinton campaign said Obama will join Clinton to campaign in Green Bay, Wisconsin next week.

Sanders remains in the race
샌더스는 경선을 계속 한다.

The endorsement came after Obama met with Clinton’s Democratic rival, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, Thursday at the White House.
이 지지선언은 오바마가 클린턴의 민주당내에서의 라이벌인, 버몬트 상원의원 버니 샌더스와 목요일 백악관에서 만난 이후에 나왔다.

In the endorsement, Obama also congratulates Sanders on an “incredible” campaign and for getting more people involved in the political process.
이 지지선언에서, 오바마는 또한 샌더스가 “믿기지 않을” 선거운동하여 정치에 보다 많은 사람을 참여 시킨것에 대해서 축하하였다.

Obama also thanked Sanders for highlighting important issues such as economic inequality, excessive money in politics and bringing young people into the process.
오바마는 또한 경제적 불평등, 과도한 정치자금 과 같은 중요한 사항들을 부각시키고 젊은이들을 이 정치과정에 불러 들인것에 역시 감사했다.

Clinton received enough delegates to capture the Democratic nomination this week after major primary wins on Tuesday. But Sanders told reporters Thursday he is looking forward to the last Democratic primary of the campaign in the District of Columbia on Tuesday.

He also spoke about the main issues he plans to bring to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia at the end of July. The Democratic Party will officially choose its nominee at the convention.

Sanders said he spoke with Clinton after her victories this week to congratulate her on a “very strong campaign.

“I look forward to meeting with her in the near future to see how we can work together to defeat Donald Trump. And to create a government which represents all of us, and not just the 1 percent.”

Sanders also took the opportunity to criticize Trump, whom he said would be a “disaster” as president of the United States.
