In just a little over two weeks, President Obama will no longer be Commander-in-Chief.
Barrack Obama has accomplished such a huge feat within eight years as President of the United States, that it’s only right he goes out of the Oval Office with a final farewell.
Next Tuesday (Jan. 10th), President Obama’s farewell address will take place in Obama’s hometown of Chicago. The announcement of his final speech was announced yesterday. Admission is free for all; however, tickets will be released Saturday on a first-come first-serve basis.
Obama has wrote up a public message in regards to his farewell speech. You can read excerpts of it here.
It’s been the privilege of my life to serve as your President. I look forward to standing with you as a citizen. Happy New Year everybody.
— President Obama (@POTUS) January 1, 2017
