President Barack Obama is reportedly going to deliver his farewell speech early next month in Chicago, where he started his political career.
The president, who prepares to leave the White House next month, is planning a public address on January 10, Politico reported, citing two sources familiar with the matter.
No venue has decided yet, and the Secret Service is surveying major venues for the event, according to the unidentified sources. Possible venues include McCormick Place and the United Center.
Obama is expected to say thanks to Chicago and the state of Illinois for helping him to start a political career. He began as a state senator and then became a U.S. senator. After that he was elected as the 44th president of the United States.
The sources believe that this would be his farewell speech just before President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration.
The White House has yet to release an official regarding Obama’s farewell speech.
