President Obama’s Farewell Address

 

President Barack Obama is scheduled to give his farewell address to the nation on Monday, January 9 at 4:00 pm. The President will deliver his speech from his hometown of Chicago, marking the first time that a President has returned to his hometown to deliver such a speech.

 

Through his address, the President will thank his supporters, celebrate the ways we have changed this country for the better these past eight years, and offer his vision on where we all go from here.

 

In 1796, as George Washington set the precedent for a peaceful, democratic transfer of power, he also set a precedent by penning a farewell address to the American people. Over the 220 years since, many American presidents have followed his lead.
