President Obama last week urged Democratic donors at a closed-door gathering to rally around Hillary Clinton, telling them Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign is nearing its endpoint, The New York Times reported Thursday.
Obama acknowledged to the donors that Clinton suffers from a perceived lack of authenticity, but called it an overrated political virtue, the report said.
Obama said that his predecessor, George W. Bush, was thought to be an authentic politician, but reminded donors he successfully ran against Bush’s record in his first presidential campaign.
