Barack Obama says goodbye to the presidency of the United States

On Tuesday, President Obama delivered his farewell address in the city of Chicago. In the speech, marked by emotional and nostalgic moments, Obama expressed his confidence in America for the new period the nation will face with the presidency of Donald Trump, and repeated his support to his successor. However, he also questioned some of Trump’s positions defended during the campaign, from climate change to voiding Barack Obama’s health care law.

The 44th President of the United States pointed out that that economic inequality, racism and closed-mindedness will endanger the nation’s democratic unity. He underlined that “America is not a fragile thing,” but when there are just 10 days left for Donald Trump to occupy the office, we could not but perceive his uncertainty over the path the nation is going to take from now on.
