Watch: Obama Farewell Speech

The End Of An Era

Outgoing US President Barack Obama delivered his farewell speech Tuesday night in his home city of Chicago.

His speech comes at the end of an 8 year term in office which featured a wide range of up’s and downs.

On the positive side is bringing Osama Bin Laden to justice, preventing a full-blown economic collapse, and expanding health coverage to millions.

On the negative is the fact that the slow economic recovery has left massive swathes of the country behind, America is seen as weak on the world stage, and that very same health coverage expansion causing a huge political backlash.

Obama leaves office with a strong approval rating, but faces having many of his policies undone by his successor Donald Trump.
