President Barack Obama will give his final farewell speech on Jan. 10 at Chicago’s McCormick Place, the White House confirmed Monday. The event will be free and open to the public, but tickets are required. Tickets will be distributed at McCormick Place on Saturday. The exact time of the ticket release has not yet been set. Only one ticket per person. For more information, visit www.whitehouse.gov/farewell/info.  The event will be live streamed on the White House Facebook page and on the White House website. Obama will say goodbye to the American people where his political career started and then gave his 2008 victory speech, which electrified Grant Park.

In an email from President Obama, he said he just started writing his speech, but he plans to make it a thank you to those who have been with him on what he’s calling an amazing journey. He also wants to ensure the smooth transition of power. Donald Trump is set to be inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States 10 days after this farewell speech.

ABC political analyst Laura Washington stated: “He’s gonna talk about what’s next in a trump administration not overtly but he’s going to talk about some things that Trump is trying to dismantle and he’s going to try to calm the waters”. “I think he is trying to keep his cool and make sure that there is no question about who is president and there’s no question about that Trump is our new leader and we have to respond to that.”

The speech gives President Obama one last chance to define his presidency and how his two terms have reshaped American life.
