“You were the change. You answered people’s hopes, and because of you, by almost every measure, America is a better, stronger place than it was when we started,” Obama told an audience in Chicago.
He ended his speech with a similar campaign echo: “Yes we can. Yes we did. Yes we can.”
Obama appeared to tear up while thanking his wife and family toward the end of his address, during which he touted the results of his tenure, noting the lower unemployment rate and millions of new recipients of health insurance covered under the Affordable Care Act, among other achievements.
But as President-elect Donald Trump prepares to take office in 10 days, Obama warned of the foreign and domestic threats to American democracy, raising the threats of terrorism, economic inequality, and climate change.
