Joe Biden: 'Moral' Sanders Supporters 'Can't Vote for Trump'

President Obama will take the stage at the Democratic National Convention for the fourth time Wednesday to make an argument that only one president has made successfully in modern times: that his policies deserve a third term in the form of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Barack Obama being the first president since Bill Clinton to deliver a speech at the Democratic National Convention in his past year in office and it should have a huge impact on the presidential campaign.

Democrats' historic handoff to Hillary Clinton has arrived with affection from one ex-president and an endorsement from an outgoing one.

Biden's comments came Tuesday during an interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

Michael Bloomberg will also be speaking tonight.

Vice President Joe Biden will take to the stage as well, and so will Senator Tim Kaine, who could be the next VP.

That speech launched Obama's national political career.

Russian Federation has denied the hacking allegations.

Even after Clinton had won California handily, some Sanders fans still hoped her high negatives in polling, her adverse media narratives and the heavy bombardment she got from Republicans would give Democratic delegates pause.

Trump said Wednesday at a press conference in Doral, Florida, "Russia has no respect for our country, if it is Russia". His suggestion - essentially asking for Russia's espionage help to damage his political rival - played into plans by Democrats to portray him as someone who would be a risky leader, willing to upend decades of US foreign policy. "This was a four-day Hillary party, and we weren't welcome", said Liz Maratea, 31, of New Jersey.

At the convention on Wednesday, "we will also hear about Donald Trump's freaky and obsequious fascination with dictators and strongmen the world over", Sullivan, a foreign policy adviser to the Clinton campaign, told reporters before Trump's remarks.

Hillary Clinton is not the woman Michelle Obama portrayed in her speech. He will argue that Clinton is best suited to build upon his legacy and help calm and unify a nation riven over a sluggish economy, as well as violence and unrest both domestic and foreign. I promise you every place I go - I've now traveled over 1,200,000 miles.

Coincidentally, Wednesday marks 12 years to the day that Barack Obama had his introduction to the national scene as the keynote speaker at John Kerry's 2004 Democratic National Convention. "It undermines our leaders' legitimacy".

But on Wednesday, the 44th president has a prime-time chance when he appears before thousands of delegates in Philadelphia and tens of millions of viewers at home.

"The president will talk about who we are as a country and that we are better united than divided, and that we're better together than apart", said White House spokesman Eric Schultz. He told NPR's Rachel Martin last month that he would be "vouching" for Clinton over the course of the race.

Their political fates now entwined, President Barack Obama will implore voters Wednesday to elect Hillary Clinton to the White House, appealing to the women, minorities and young people who powered his rise and are now crucial to hers.

"She has to separate herself in a meaningful way", said Ken Mayer, a political science professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison who studies the presidency.

"The truth is, Donald Trump knows nothing about foreign [policy] - nor should he based upon his background", Mr. Biden said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe".

The children want to know how she understands what it is like to go to bed hungry and to seldom see their parents because those moms and dads are working multiple jobs just to keep a roof over their heads.
