This is what The President told Latino leaders last night:
"Don’t forget who is standing with you. You have every right to keep the heat on me and the Democrats, and I hope you do. That’s how our political process works, but don’t forget who is standing with you, and who is standing against you. Don’t ever believe that this election coming up doesn’t matter. Now I know that many of you campaigned hard for me, and understandably you’re frustrated that we have not been able to move this over the finish line yet. I am too, but let me be clear: I will not walk away from this fight. My commitment is to getting this done as soon as we can. Don’t forget who your friends are. No se olviden. Don’t forget."
