Barack Obama, In Tribute to Wife Michelle, Calls Her His Best Friend

Farewell to all this too Unusually Donald Trump is giving up a plane by becoming president- in his case his personalized Boeing 757

Obama was moved to tears when he came to thank his family.

Barack Obama throws out the ceremonial first pitch before Game 2 of the 2005 ALCS between the Angels and White Sox.

In 2009, the then-CBS Early Show completely ignored President Bush's farewell address. "Not in my ability to bring about change - but in yours", he said. An overtly emotional Obama thanked Americans for their support through his 8 year long voyage.

"Under the strangest of circumstances, you have become two wonderful young women, smart and handsome, but more importantly, kind and thoughtful and full of passion", he said.

George Washington was the first president to deliver a farewell address, releasing a textual farewell at the end of his second term.

"This trend represents a third threat to our democracy". Some in the crowd bursted into boos, but Mr. Obama waved them away.

'Not just because you have been a great Vice President, but because in the bargain, I gained a brother. "Because it's up to all of us to make sure our government can help us meet the many challenges we still face".

The 55-years-old president in his signature slogan said "Yes We can" and added "Yes, We did".

Less than a year after taking office, Obama delivered his views on the conditions for using force as he accepted the Nobel Peace Prize. Every single person here says that they don't want to see Trump as president.

The president also made a prediction that, in its own indirect way, cast doubt on whether Trump's election victory will be able to withstand the diverse America that is rebelling against it.

On the global stage, critics say America's influence waned under Mr. Obama and Russian Federation grew stronger. And last night, she gave her fashion fans one last surprise by returning to the designer that started it all.

"In 10 days, the world will witness a hallmark of our democracy", Obama said, prompting a negative response from his supporters, "the peaceful transfer of power from one freely-elected president to the next".

"Obama's legacy is on the line as Trump is likely to try to unwind all things done during Obama's presidency".

The surprising scope of his own political rise and watching the political process up close "can energize and inspire", Obama said. "You were the change".

In his emotional farewell address, Obama called on the nation's young and "young at heart" to pick up where he left off, pushing for social and political progress through grassroots and political involvement. Obama also touted some of the accomplishments of his administration, including recovering from the recession, boosting the auto industry, improving relations with Cuba, shutting down Iran's nuclear weapons program and killing Osama Bin Laden.

His final address was cautious but he remained optimistic. He became the state's junior U.S. senator in 2004.

The warmup act at the indoor event at the McCormick Place convention center featured entertainer Eddie Vedder and a 24-member children's choir. "It means everything to me as a fellow South Sider".
