No! Don't Go Obama !
Whew! It was almost 8 years ago since President Barack Obama was elected as our 44th First Black President, tonight, President Obama will make his farewell speech at the McCormick Place located in Chicago. at 8 p.m.
Sources say that this is not a victory lap speech, but a call to action to the future leaders of the White House a.k.a “Donald Trump.”
According to his senior adviser Valerie Jarret, “The major focus on the speech isn't going to be reflecting back on how far we've come over the last eight years, but really looking forward and how we take the accomplishments, many (of which) through the hard work and grit of the American people came to fruition, and build on that going forward."
The planning for the speech began last summer, according to Obama’s top advisers. For several months they've been mapping out his 8 years. Unlike other Presidents who delivered their farewell speech from Washington D.C, Obama rather make his speech at the same place where he made his victory speech in 2008 in CHI-TOWN!
At tonight's speech,Obama will be accompanied by his wife Michelle Obama, along with his two daughters Sasha and Malia, and Vice President, Joe Biden.
Thousands of people lined up in Chicago on Saturday for hours to try to get a ticket to Obama’s last speech. Too bad, not everyone was able to get a ticket.
For those of you who didn't receive tickets to Obama’s last speech, you can tune in at 8 p.m tonight on all local channels!
We salute you for all your hard work, and we will miss you President Barack Obama!
