'I believe in Hillary Clinton,' Obama tells voters

US President Barack Obama speaks at a campaign event for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton (L) in Charlotte, North Carolina, on July 5, 2016President Barack Obama made a dramatic return to the campaign trail at Hillary Clinton’s side Tuesday, throwing his full weight — and compelling oratory — behind her bid to succeed him in the White House. Obama has been off the campaign trail for years, but the president made a passionate case for Clinton in their first joint appearance of the 2016 race, as he celebrated her character and castigated her Republican rival Donald Trump. “I’m here today because I believe in Hillary Clinton,” Obama told the rally in Charlotte, North Carolina taking place just hours after the FBI’s bombshell announcement that it will not recommend charges over Clinton’s email practices while she was Obama’s secretary of state.
