In his final State of the Union address, President Obama outlined his vision for the future of the country and touted his accomplishments during his two terms in office.
“For my final address to this chamber, I don’t want to talk just about the next year. I want to focus on the next five years, ten years, and beyond. I want to focus on our future,” he said.
President Obama used his final State of the Union address to pose an unusually broad and forward-looking speech that seemed haunted by the idea that Obama could be succeeded by the fearful, blustery politics of Republican front-runner Donald Trump.
