Obama to headline DNC fundraiser before UN meetings

September 19, 2016 12:00AM (UTC)

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is headlining a Democratic Party fundraiser in New York before his final appearance at the U.N. General Assembly.

Obama is scheduled to deliver remarks and answer questions Sunday night at a private home in Manhattan. Reporters will hear the remarks, but not the Q-and-A.


Proceeds will benefit the Democratic National Committee, the campaign of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and state parties.

Obama has vowed to work vigorously this fall to help elect Clinton in November. He campaigned for the former secretary of state in Philadelphia last week.

Obama addresses the high-level meeting of world leaders at the United Nations on Tuesday.

He'll also meet individually with the leaders of Iraq, Israel, Nigeria and Colombia, as well as a top Chinese official.
