Barack Obama bid farewell to the nation on Tuesday in an emotional
speech that sought to comfort a country on edge over rapid economic
changes, persistent security threats and the election of Donald Trump.
at times and tearful at others, Obama’s valedictory speech in his
hometown of Chicago was a public meditation on the many trials the U.S.
faces as Obama takes his exit. For the challenges that are new, Obama
offered his vision for how to surmount them, and for the persistent
problems he was able to overcome, he offered optimism that others,
eventually, will. (AP)
