Hillary Clinton outlined her plan for the economy in a rally in Raleigh June 22, 2016.

— President Barack Obama will join his preference for a successor, Hillary Clinton, in a campaign stop in Charlotte next week.

Obama and Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, will be in the Queen City on Tuesday. A rally is scheduled for 3 p.m. at the Charlotte Convention Center.

"I've seen her determination to give every American a fair shot at opportunity, no matter how tough the fight. That’s what's always driven her, and still does," Obama said in a recent endorsement of Clinton.

Clinton made a campaign stop in Raleigh last week, her first visit to the state since the March 15 primary.

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump held a rally in Greensboro on June 14.

    Trump will win?

    Well he's got a ways to go considering he is the most unpopular presidential candidate ever. 70% of Americans view him unfavorably. I'll admit Hillary is very unpopular too, but Trump wins the gold on that.

    Oh maybe Trump will win!! When Obama was elected we had 28 Democratic Governors and 22 Republicans. After seven years of Obama's polices we now have 18 Democrats as Governor and 31 Republicans. There are two independents. Today Republican's govern MA, MD, ME, IL and NJ. Who would have ever thought. The Senate in 2009 was 59 Democrats and 41 Republicans. Today it is 44 Democrats and 54 Republicans with two Independents. The House in 2009 was 256 Democrats and 179 Republicans. Today, it is 188 Democrats and 246 Republicans. He has been detrimental in destroying the power of the Democratic party nationally.

    95 and 96 % of blacks voted for him in 2008 and 2012. Yea I would say they support him regardless of his politics.

    You have 0 evidence to prove your idea that they support him regardless.

    If you choose to believe it simply because it fits your narrative and not bc of proof then that is your right.

    Latest polling shows Obama with a 50% approval rating, so I wouldn't say it's that bad.

    Now Congress, barely has a 20% approval rating and it's been that way a long time.

    So, based on the American people it's Congress that's done a much worse job than the president.

    Of course he is with Clinton, she is going to keep the country going down hill just as Obama has done in the last 8 years, of course he is going to Praise her, but leaving out Benghazi, and the FBI probe into her email. I just can't believe the USA, is allowing a person who is under investigation by the FBI no less, to run for President, NOW talk about Politics at it's best, WOW, the world has went to the dogs, and the filthy rich, middle class doesn't have a chance, and the lower class is already at the bottom, they are just going to get even lower, the only ones that get anything is the Filthy Rich.
