Michelle Obama hugged Hillary Clinton on Thursday campaigning together with the former Secretary of State for the first time.

“This is truly an unprecedented election, and that’s why I’m out here,” Obama said at Wake Forest University. “If people are wondering, yes, Hillary Clinton is my friend.”

Obama told the crowd of approximately 11,000 people that Donald Trump‘s suggestion that the election is “rigged” is a political ploy. “That is the strategy. To make this election so dirty and ugly that we don’t want any part of it,” the First Lady said. “And I want you to remember that folks marched and protested for our right to vote. They endured beatings and jail time, they sacrificed their lives for this right. So I know you can get yourselves to the polls to exercise that right, because make no mistake casting our vote is the ultimate way we go high when they go low.”
