"On Tuesday, January 10, I'll go home to Chicago to say my grateful farewell to you, even if you can't be there in person," Obama said, as quoted in a statement on the White House's website.
Obama has served two consecutive presidential terms since 2009.
It’s been the privilege of my life to serve as your President. I look forward to standing with you as a citizen. Happy New Year everybody.— President Obama (@POTUS) 1 января 2017 г.
