President Obama’s Farewell Address


Barack Obama’s presidency will soon come to an end, and he will deliver a farewell address to the nation tonight at 9 pm Eastern in Chicago. The speech will air on most major broadcast networks, and we’ll embed a live stream above when it’s available.

The address comes at a tense and uncertain moment in American politics. Donald Trump, whom Obama has called “unfit to serve,” is preparing to take the office. Trump has pledged to deport many more unauthorized immigrants, sharply limit Muslim immigration, repeal Obamacare, roll back climate change regulations, and build up the US’s nuclear weapons arsenal. Overall, Trump plans to try to erase much of the legacy that Obama thought he would leave the country.
