President Obama and Michelle Obama may have disappeared into the horizon on the Marine One helicopter after Friday morning’s inauguration of President Donald Trump, but they weren’t gone for long if you checked online.
A website for the Obama Foundation featured a new YouTube video with the couple explaining what was next for the 44th president and his wife.
“We want to thank you once again from the bottom of our hearts for giving us the incredible privilege of serving this country that we love,” Obama said. “We also want to tell you a little bit about what we’ll be up to next.”
With Chicago as a home base, the Obama Foundation promises to “focus on developing the next generation of citizens — and what it means to be a good citizen in the 21st century.”
The Obamas said that The Obama Presidential Center, in Jackson park on Chicago’s South Side, will be more than just a presidential library — it will be a “living, working center for citizenship.”
“Send us your ideas, your hopes, your beliefs about what we can achieve together,” Michelle Obama said.
