US election: We'll carry Clinton to victory, says Obama
US President Barack Obama has implored voters to help continue his legacy by carrying Hillary Clinton to victory at the polls in November.
He said voters faced a choice between hope and fear, attacking "home-grown demagogue" Republican Donald Trump.
Mr Trump responded by rejecting the president's optimistic portrayal.
"Our country does not feel 'great already' to the millions of wonderful people living in poverty, violence and despair," he said on Twitter.
Mr Obama recounted his key victories over his past eight years in office and painted an optimistic future.
He extolled Mrs Clinton's character, calling her a "leader with real plans to break down barriers, blast through glass ceilings and widen the circle of opportunity to every single American".
Mr Obama described his nation as "full of courage", "decent and generous", but also concerned about racial divisions and "frustrated with political gridlock".
