First Lady Michelle Obama gave an impassioned speech seeking to unify the Democratic Party behind Hillary Clinton Monday night at Wells Fargo Center.
Obama sought to energize the crowd, and emphasize the impact of the presidency on individuals, urging listeners to vote with an eye toward the future rather than politics.
Obama teared up when talking about her daughters having spent the last 7.5 years in a house built by slaves.
That transformation, Obama said, reflects the falsehood in Donald Trump’s campaign slogan.
“Don’t let anyone tell you our country isn’t great,” Obama said. “This right now is the greatest country on earth.”
