    US President Barack Obama has met with a number of Democratic donors and urged them to support former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the presidential race, local media reported on Thursday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Obama met the donors last week and asked them to support Clinton since the presidential campaign of Senator Bernie Sanders is coming to its end, the New York Times reported.

    The US president also admitted that Clinton’s campaign has problems with the candidate’s authenticity, but underscored that the issues is overrated, the media outlet reports.

    Obama has previously stated that a Democrat would win the presidential election scheduled for November 8.

    Up to date, Clinton has had more victories in Democratic primaries and caucuses than Sanders.

    In February, Clinton said she that if she wins the 2016 election, she will work with congressmen to continue the progress on the basis of the incumbent US President Barack Obama's accomplishments.
