President Obama Will Deliver His Farewell Address in Chicago

But Obama's final rally hasn't been limited to brand messaging; he's also unleashed some powerful moves to keep some of his policies in place once Trump is inaugurated.

Obama said he was following the model established by George Washington, the first president.

Obama celebrated his election to the White House eight years ago in front of a huge and ecstatic crowd in Chicago, his adopted hometown.

Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook said Tuesday the US would continue to carry out Obama's policy on Guantanamo Bay.

President Barack Obama has scheduled his farewell address for January 10th, according to an email statement released earlier today, reported by Reuters.

He added: "So I hope you'll join me one last time".

Obama will be giving the speech from Chicago, the place where he called home for so long and got his political start.

"I think I would expect at this point additional transfers to be announced before January 20", White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told a media briefing on Tuesday. The next DNC chair should absolutely have the chance to shape the party's response to Trump, but Democrats can't go dark until February. On Wednesday, Obama plans to meet with Democratic leaders on Capitol Hill to discuss strategy.

At the daily White House briefing, Earnest said some economists think a border tax would have a "starkly negative impact" on the economy because it would result in higher prices for USA consumers and retaliatory tariffs on US goods shipped overseas.

The Obamas already plan to stay in D.C. well after they leave the White House later this month so youngest daughter Sasha can finish high school.

Obama will fall short of his goal of shuttering the prison. But on their last Hawaii vacation, the first family took time out to visit Breakout Waikiki, where visitors are "trapped" in a room together and must try, as a team, to escape.
