Obama took Hillary Clinton to “air force one”

The election race in the US, the favorites of which are the former Secretary of state Hillary Clinton and Donald trump (of the Democrats and Republicans respectively) to a new level. The former Secretary of state at a rally in North Carolina on 5 July decided to join the current U.S. leader Barack Obama. He intends to persuade undecided voters side with Clinton, and perhaps to take revenge on the opposing party. Indeed, in 2012, when Obama was re-elected for a second term in North Carolina it beat Republican MITT Romney.

This is not the only feature of the state in the context of the campaign. Primaries in North Carolina were held in March of this year: the victory was won by Clinton, beating his colleague in the Democratic party, Bernie Sanders. But as for the confrontation with Republicans, according to the American analysts, in the state the positions of candidates from both parties are roughly equal. In this regard, the White house decided to use to support Clinton “heavy artillery” in the person of the President – it is expected that he will participate in several of her meetings with voters.

Officially support Clinton, Obama announced on June 9, and in the same month are expected to appear together with former Secretary of state. But the tragedy of June 12 in Orlando, which claimed the lives of 50 people, made adjustments to the plans of the American leader.

For the first performances of Clinton and Obama was chosen as the largest city of North Carolina — Charlotte, where politicians decided to arrive on the “Board number one”, that is, on the presidential plane. This in turn angered the main favorite of the Republicans Donald trump: “Why President Obama is allowed to use the “air force one” to fly a swindler Hillary? She flies with him tomorrow. Who pays?”, – he wrote in his microblog.

However, although “air force one” traditionally refers to one of two specially equipped presidential Boeing VC-25, it is, first and foremost, the Callsign for the aircraft, which is the head of state. And, depending on the purpose of the mission and capabilities of the host airport can be used and other more “modest” aircraft.

The trump also decided to hold a meeting with voters of North Carolina in Raleigh. The main goal of Republicans now is to prove that a potential Clinton presidency will be a continuation of the current vector of development. Such a strategy, the newspaper the New York Times, is understood not all Republicans. “Trump doesn’t understand that at the main elections, not everyone wants to completely change the order of things” – the newspaper quoted one of the strategists of the party, by Christine Matthews.

As for Obama, he is known to have repeatedly criticized as trump and others nominated from Republican candidates. “When my opponent was John McCain, we have had serious disagreements,” recalled the American leader in large-scale January an interview with Politico. But he did not deny climate. He was not calling for prohibition for Muslims to enter the USA”. Now, I’m sure Obama, the rhetoric of the Republicans is not just shifted to the right, but has changed beyond recognition, and every voter needs to pay attention to this fact.
