KISSIMMEE, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES (NOVEMBER 6, 2016) (RESTRICTED POOL) – U.S President Barack Obama appealed to Florida voters during a campaign rally in Kissimmee, Florida to get out and vote, assuring supporters of a Clinton victory should she win the Sunshine State.

“All the progress we’ve made goes out the window if we don’t win this election and we win this election if we win Florida. If we win Florida, it’s a wrap. We win Florida, it’s over,” Obama said on Sunday (November 6)

Volunteers across Florida made a last-minute push to get voters to the polls this weekend with early voting ending on Sunday ahead of Election Day on Tuesday, pitting Republican Donald Trump against Democrat Hillary Clinton.

A Reuters/Ipsos tracking poll released on Friday put Clinton just 5 percentage points above her Republican rival.

Obama also mocked Trump over a report that the Trump campaign had blocked the GOP nominee’s access to Twitter. Trump is known to unleash a barrage of tweets on various subjects, often in the middle of the night.

“In the last two days, they had so little confidence in his self-control, they said we’re just going to take away your Twitter. Now, if somebody can’t handle a Twitter account, they can’t handle the nuclear code,” Obama said.
