President Obama encouraged voters to elect Hillary Clinton and said Republican candidate Donald Trump was only pushing fear and slogans to Americans.


“America is already great. America is already strong,” Obama said Wednesday at the Democratic National Convention. “And I promise you, our strength, our greatness, does not depend on Donald Trump.”


“There has never been a man or a woman – not me, not Bill, nobody – more qualified than Hillary Clinton to serve as president of the United States of America,” he added.


Clinton later appeared onstage with Obama, hugging and waving to delegates. 


“The Donald is not really a plans guy. He’s not really a facts guy, either,” Obama said. “He calls himself a business guy, which is true, but I have to say, I know plenty of businessmen and women who’ve achieved remarkable success without leaving a trail of lawsuits, and unpaid workers, and people feeling like they got cheated.”


Trump took to Twitter to respond, saying, “Our country does not feel 'great already' to the millions of wonderful people living in poverty, violence and despair.”


Also Wednesday, the delegates nominated Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine for vice president.


“Hillary has a passion for kids and families. … Donald Trump has a passion too: It's himself,” Kaine said.


Clinton is expected to deliver her nomination acceptance speech Thursday.
