Obama has endorsed Macron in the French election:
“I'm not planning to get involved in many elections now that I don't have to run for office, but the French election is very important to the future of France and the values that we care so much about, because the success of France matters to the entire world", Obama said in the clip.
“He appeals to people’s hopes and not their fears,” he said. “And he is committed to a better future for the French people. He has stood up for liberal values. He put forward a vision for the important role that France plays in Europe and around the world.”
“I am supporting Emmanuel Macron to lead you forward.”
Let’s remember how well all of the “respectable” endorsements worked regarding Brexit and Trump. With every “respectable” endorsement, the outsider gained a few more votes.
You go, Barack! Can you get Hillary to speak up?
