After 3 months of vacationing to the Caribbean, Palm Springs California, and French Polynesia, the Obama’s are back and in Chicago.
As the first 100 days come to an end of Trump’s Presidency, Mr. Obama is back to work. The first order of business is working with young people and young professionals. The young people/professionals need to be engaged more in civics and politics. Mr. Obama wants the young generation to be more open to running for public office. He came in the panel joking saying “What’s been going on while I’ve been gone?”
He also spoke on the lack of opportunities the young generation have in this country.
“I want to work with them to knock down those barriers and get this next generation to accelerate their move toward that leadership. If that happens, I think we’re going to be just fine.”
“All those issues are serious and daunting, but they are not insoluble. What is preventing us from tackling them and making more progress really has to do with our politics and our civil life.”
“This community taught me that ordinary people, when working together, can do extraordinary things.”
President Obama spoke before leaving the white house about how the young generation is very important in the progress of this country. He also announced that he will continue to work after leaving The White House, and he will begin with getting the young people/professionals more aware and engaged.
The work is just getting started.
