Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump takes the stage at a campaign rally in AshevilleBy Ayesha Rascoe and James Oliphant PHILADELPHIA/DES MOINES, Iowa (Reuters) – With Hillary Clinton sidelined by pneumonia, U.S. President Barack Obama took up the Democrats’ fight against Donald Trump on Tuesday, trying to quash the Republican presidential candidate’s bid to appeal to working-class voters. Obama, whose 50 percent job approval rating could help improve the climate for the Democratic ticket in the Nov. 8 election, rallied party faithful against Trump, a 70-year-old New York real estate developer, at an outdoor event in Philadelphia. Obama’s campaign appearance was his first as a solo act on behalf of Clinton as he tries to ensure Democrats retain control of the White House once his eight years are over in January.
