Obama: "Our Strength, Our Greatness, Does Not Depend on Donald Trump"

PHILADELPHIA - US president Barack Obama today stressed that the US is already "great" and "strong" and that the greatness and strength of the country "does not depend on" the Republican candidate for the White House Donald Trump.

"He's just offering slogans, and he's offering fear," denounced Obama during his speech to support the Democratic candidate for the White House Hillary Clinton at the party's convention.

Obama also said that "the American dream is something no wall can ever contain," in reference to Trump's promise of erecting a wall along the border with Mexico if he succeeds in the elections.

The president also warned that "democracy doesn't work if we constantly demonize each other."

"There has never been a man or woman, not me, not Bill - nobody more qualified than Hillary Clinton to serve as president of the United States," Obama underlined.

Clinton understands that "we don't fear the future; we shape it, embrace it, as one people, stronger together than we are on our own," Obama highlighted.

After calling the US a country "full of courage, and optimism," Obama brought up the message of "hope" that guided his first electoral campaign which eventually brought him into the White House.

"America, you have vindicated that hope these past eight years. And now I'm ready to pass the baton and do my part as a private citizen. This year, in this election, I'm asking you to join me - to reject cynicism, reject fear, to summon what's best in us; to elect Hillary Clinton as the next President of the United States, and show the world we still believe in the promise of this great nation."

At the end of his speech, Clinton emerged on the stage and embraced Obama to the roar of fervent applause and cheers from those attending.
