American President, Barack Obama has urged Democrats of all ethnic backgrounds to get out and vote for Hillary Clinton, warning that the fate of the US republic – and the world – is at stake.

President Obama was spoke at a rally in North Carolina.

Mr Trump has however told Mr Obama to stop campaigning for Mrs Clinton and focus on running the country.

“The bottom line is, no-one wants four more years of Obama,” he told supporters in Pensacola, Florida.

He said Mrs Clinton had become “unhinged” in recent days.

“The fate of the republic rests on your shoulders,” President Obama told supporters in the key battleground state of North Carolina.

“The fate of the world is teetering and you, North Carolina, are going to have to make sure that we push it in the right direction.

“I am not on the ballot, but I tell you what – fairness is on the ballot; decency is on the ballot; justice is on the ballot; progress is on the ballot; our democracy is on the ballot.”

The FBI is now investigating new emails that may be linked to its probe into Mrs Clinton’s private email server even as the agency’s director, James Comey, has faced a fierce backlash for announcing the move just 11 days before the presidential election that has seen polls tighten with just seven days to the election..
