New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio endorsed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton for president on Friday. 'The candidate who I believe can fundamentally address income inequality effectively, the candidate who has the right vision and the right experience and the ability to get the job done, is Hillary Clinton,' he said on MSNBC's 'Morning Joe.' 'I've seen her vision and platform develop over five months. I'm extremely pleased with what she's put on the table.' De Blasio's endorsement of Clinton, the former secretary of state, was long-awaited. Though he's been openly supportive of her campaign, he had said that he wanted hear more of her vision before officially signing on. He was also waiting for her to speak out on President Barack Obama's controversial trade deal.
