[VOA News] U.S. President Barack Obama will deliver what the White House describes as “a forward-looking” farewell address tonight to the American people.
The speech will recap Obama’s accomplishments over the past eight years in office. It also is intended to “motivate people to want to get involved and fight for their democracy,” White House senior advisor Valerie Jarrett told reporters Monday.
The address will be delivered at 9 p.m. ET at McCormick Place, the lakefront convention center in Chicago, Obama’s adopted hometown.
