President Obama and Hillary Clinton coming to Charlotte Tuesday

President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton will be coming to Charlotte on July 5th, according to her campaign team.

Obama and Clinton are slated to discuss their vision for an America that is stronger together.

Earlier this month, Obama formally endorsed Clinton's bid for the White House, praising his former secretary of state's experience and grit, and urging Democrats to unite behind her in the fight against Republicans in the fall.

"Look, I know how hard this job can be. That's why I know Hillary will be so good at it," Obama said in a web video circulated by the Clinton campaign. "I have seen her judgment. I have seen her toughness."

In endorsing Clinton earlier this month, Obama said: “I’ve seen her determination to give every American a fair shot at opportunity, no matter how tough the fight – that’s what's always driven her, and still does.”

N.C. Attorney General Roy Cooper, the Democratic candidate for governor, will join Obama and Clinton. So will Deborah Ross, the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate.

Both were absent during Clinton’s campaign stop in Raleigh last week.

The Republican National Committee weighed in after news of the upcoming campaign trip broke, pointing out that Obama lost North Carolina in 2012 and, two years later, Republican Thom Tillis unseated then-U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan, a Democrat.

“This event (in Charlotte on Tuesday) will be another reminder that all Hillary Clinton is offering are four more years of the same
failed Obama policies that have made America less prosperous and less safe,” RNC spokeswoman Kara Carter said in an emailed statement.

But those N.C. votes in 2012 and 2014 were both very close, confirming North Carolina’s identity as a purple state – one where the margin of victory in statewide elections tends to be just 1 percent to 2 percent.

In 2008, Obama became the first Democratic presidential candidate to win North Carolina since Jimmy Carter in 1976. It was Obama’s narrowest victory in the country. Four years later, Mitt Romney returned the state to the GOP column, but his win was also close. North Carolina is a must-win for Republicans: None have won the White House without carrying it since Dwight Eisenhower in 1956.
Charlotte was the site of the 2012 Democratic National Convention, where Obama was nominated for a second term. His campaign insisted he would compete hard for the state, but the president never returned to campaign here after giving his nominating speech.

In 2008, Obama’s defeat of Clinton in North Carolina’s Democratic primary was seen as pivotal in his march to the party’s nomination that year.

The joint appearance Tuesday by Obama and Clinton is clear proof that North Carolina will again be a major battleground state in the 2016 presidential race. Besides Clinton campaign speech in Raleigh last week, her campaign has blanketed the N.C. airwaves with TV ads touring here and criticizing presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump.

Hillary Clinton: Understands fear of foreign trade

Hillary Clinton says she's sympathetic to voters attracted to Donald Trump's message, who feel left behind on the economic margins of America.
The former secretary of state has told a crowd of young digital content creators at a town hall-style meeting in Hollywood, California, on Tuesday that more must be done to create jobs and improve the economy.

She says she understands why some people are upset or fearful about foreign trade or illegal immigration.

But Clinton says she's looking for solutions and warns about "misleading promises" and a Trump agenda that she says would take the country backward.

She says she is not sympathetic with Islamophobia, xenophobia, homophobia, misogyny and other "sort of dog whistle's that Trump uses to create that fervor among a lot of his supporters."

"That is contrary to our values," she says.

Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump is reiterating his call for the return of waterboarding and the use of other harsh interrogation techniques in the battle against Islamic State militants.

Trump tells a rally crowd in Ohio that, "you have to fight fire with fire."

The pronouncement drew cheers and chants of "USA! USA!"

During the Republican primary, Trump frequently advocated the return of waterboarding and "much worse," declaring at one point that "torture works." Trump says: "We have to fight so viciously and violently because we're dealing with violent people."

Trump is continuing his harsh rhetoric as he approaches the general election campaign, even as his advisers work to make him more measured.

Hillary Clinton says the bombings at Istanbul Ataturk Airport are "a reminder that the United States cannot retreat."

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee says in a statement that the U.S. must deepen its cooperation with allies and partners in the Middle East and Europe "to take on this threat."

Clinton says: "Such cooperation is essential to protecting the homeland and keeping our country safe."

Clinton says that Americans stand united with the people of Turkey against this campaign of hatred and violence.

She says "Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, and the Turkish people. ... Today's attack in Istanbul only strengthens our resolve to defeat the forces of terrorism and radical jihadism around the world."

Republican Donald Trump is responding to Tuesday's deadly attack in Istanbul, Turkey, by warning of the danger of threats at home.

The presumptive Republican nominee tells a rally in St. Clairsville, Ohio, that "there's something going on that's really, really bad. We better get smart and we better get tough or we're not going to have much of a country left."

Suspected Islamic State militants killed dozens of people and wounded more at the international terminal of Istanbul Ataturk Airport.

Trump's campaign also released a statement earlier Tuesday saying its "prayers are with the families" of those killed and injured.

It adds, "We must take steps now to protect America from terrorists, and do everything in our power to improve our security to keep America safe."

Donald Trump's Tweets Are Getting More Polished

Americans need to get used to a more polished, presidential Donald Trump, with the last two major speeches, including a speech on the economy on Tuesday in Pennsylvania, being scripted — right down to his crisp suits and consummately combed hair.

The new scripted Trump — who has veered from his off-the-cuff approach after firing his campaign manager last week — has received negative reviews on Twitter, with many users saying that Trump sounded boring as he read from a teleprompter in each instance.

Many politicians’ Twitter accounts are run by staffers firing off links or quotes from speeches, and there’s a special denotation when it’s a tweet by the politician him or herself. (Hillary Clinton, for example, signs her tweets “- HRC”.) Trump, on the other hand, has always been the author of his own tweets. But here it seems someone else tweeted out a quote from one of Trump’s speeches under his Twitter handle.

Other tweets use more polished language than Trump’s typical fare, and promote new campaign hashtags. Take this one from June 22:

“Americanism” and “corrupt globalism” are words unlikely to appear in a Trump-written tweet; he prefers simpler language, insults and sentence fragments. (For example, “Crooked Hillary Clinton got Brexit wrong. I said LEAVE will win. She has no sense of markets and such bad judgement. Only a question of time”.) The hashtag also comes from one of Trump’s pre-written, teleprompter speeches, which he delivered on June 22, and it’s one his team is continuing to promote:
