Incredible photos from President Obama, Michelle Obama, and Joe Biden’s week on the trail.
This is what stronger together looks like.
With three presidential debates down and fewer than three weeks to go before Election Day, President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, and Vice President Joe Biden hit the campaign trail, with rallies across the country. They made their pitch that Hillary has the right vision to move our country forward. Nearly eight years of progress is on the ballot, and they all described how there’s too much at stake to sit out this election.
Here are 14 photos you should see from this week that warmed our hearts and demonstrated that we are stronger together than we are divided:
President Barack Obama lays out the progress we’ve made together while in Miami Gardens, Florida.
“I see all of you, Americans of every faith and every race and every region of the country, who know that we’re stronger together, young and old, men and women, black, white, Latino, Asian, Native American, people with disabilities or not, all pledging allegiance to the red, white, and blue. That’s what I see about America. That’s the America I know.
“There is only one candidate in this race who has devoted her life to that better America, the next president of the United States, Hillary Clinton.”
“I will tell you, even in the middle of a crisis, [Hillary] is calm and cool and collected. And she’s listening to people, and she’s treating everybody with respect.
“And here’s the thing about Hillary: No matter how tough the odds, no matter how much people try to knock her down, no matter how mean folks can be, she doesn’t point fingers. She doesn’t complain. She doesn’t whine.
“She just works harder. And she gets the job done. And she never, ever, ever quits. And that’s why I know she can be a great president of the United States of America.”
Don’t fall for the easy cynicism that says your vote doesn’t matter.”
“Ask the Marine who can serve this country without hiding the husband that he loves. Ask him if your vote matters. Ask the autoworker who saw his factory go dark but now is working a double shift. Find out from him if your vote matters.”
“Don’t boo. Vote! Booing doesn’t do any good. Vote, and get your friends to vote. Get Uncle Joe to vote. Get Pookie to vote, and Javier to vote. Vote, don’t boo! Trump can’t hear you from here. But he can hear you when you go to the ballot box and vote.”
Vice President Joe Biden challenges Americans to not give into fear while in Nashua, New Hampshire:
“Ladies and gentlemen, this is no time to be afraid. This is a time to embrace the future, appeal to the better angels of the American people. They’ve always had demagogue-type people who have in fact appealed to their fears, but they have never succeeded. And you cannot let them succeed now.”
“We are so much better prepared to own the 21st century like we did the 20th, to be a power for good … Democrats and Republicans once again, let us do what we used to do.”
During a stop in Phoenix, Arizona, First Lady Michelle Obama calls on everyone to stand up for their fellow Americans — and vote.
“I’ve been reminded of what my husband and I would always talk about when we were out on the campaign trail … I have been reminded of the importance of hope. Because let me just say this: This is what hope looks like. It’s that belief that we can be better, that we can do better for our kids, that even in our darkest hours, there is always a brighter day ahead. And if we’re willing to work for it and fight for it, we can make it happen.”
“We all know better. Whether we’re Democrats, Republicans, or Independents, it does not matter. We all understand that an attack on any one of us is an attack on all of us … We are a nation built on our differences, guided by the belief that we are all created equal. A nation that fully recognizes that we are always stronger together. All of us. That’s who we are. That’s the country we want to raise our kids in.”
“Hillary knows that our country is powerful and vibrant and strong, big enough to have a place for all of us, and that each of us is a precious part of the great American story. Hillary believes in equality, inclusion, liberty and justice for all, that each of us should have that chance to fulfill our potential and build our shared future. That is Hillary’s vision for America.”
“If you want to stand up for yourself and your fellow Americans, then go vote. If you want to get Hillary elected, vote. Vote early. Vote right now.”
