Shortly before President Donald Trump’s inauguration Friday, former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama detailed their post-presidency plans.
In a video message, the Obamas said they will begin work on the Obama Foundation — which they called a “center for citizenship” — headquartered in the South Side of Chicago.
But first, the former first lady said, the family will “take a little break” in order to get some sleep and spend some time together.
They asked Americans to submit their ideas for what they feel makes a good citizen as they start the foundation.
“More than a library or museum, it will be a living, working center for citizenship,” the former president said. “That’s why we want to hear from you. Tell us what you want this project to be.”
The former first couple thanked Americans for the privilege of serving as president.
“Thank you, and we will see all of you again soon,” he added. “Bye-bye.”
