Trump vs Clinton race is like imaginary past vs future, says Barack Obama
US President Barack Obama has thrown his weight behind Hillary Clinton as he likened the presidential race between the former Secretary of State and real estate tycoon Donald Trump to a choice between “future and imaginary past”. “This is a choice between whether we are going to clingto some imaginary past or whether we’re going to reach for the future,” Obama said in his maiden campaign rally in support of Clinton at Charlotte in North Carolina yesterday. “This November, in this election, you are going to have a very clear choice to make; between two fundamentally different visions of where America should go. And this isn’t even really a choice between left and right or Democrat or Republican,” he said in his address to thousands of Clinton supporters.
