WASHINGTON: Promising to be “right there” with the US citizens at every step, Barack Obama in his final tweet as the 44th President of the United States on Saturday thanked his countrymen, saying serving them was the “honour of his life”.
“It’s been the honour of my life to serve you. You made me a better leader and a better man,” Obama said in a tweet before he left the Oval Office to welcome his successor Donald Trump at the White House.
“I won’t stop; I’ll be right there with you as a citizen, inspired by your voices of truth and justice, good humour, and love,” the 55-year-old said in another tweet.
The First Lady Michelle Obama also posted a brief video on her tweeter feed “taking it in one last walk through the People’s House” as she is seen walking with the First Dogs.
“For future updates from Mrs Obama, be sure to follow @MichelleObama,” she wrote. “Being your First Lady has been the honour of a lifetime. From the bottom of my heart, thank you,” she said in her final pinned tweet signed as “mo” which stands for Michelle Obama.
