U.S. President Barack Obama laid out Wednesday why he thinks Hillary Clinton should take over when he leaves office in January, saying no man or woman has ever been more qualified for the job.

His speech at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania highlighted accomplishments from his administration, while also describing Clinton as the candidate who believes the country is better when people of all backgrounds come together.

“This year, in this election, I’m asking you to join me — to reject cynicism, and reject fear, and 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,” Obama said
