Obama issues final Thanksgiving wishes as president


Outgoing U.S. President Barack Obama on Thursday (November 24) wished Americans a happy Thanksgiving in his weekly address.

Obama urged his countrymen and women to stay united in the wake of the divisive presidential election.

“As a country, we’ve just emerged from a noisy, passionate, and sometimes divisive campaign season. After all, elections are often where we emphasize what sets us apart. We face off in a contest of “us” versus “them.” We focus on the candidate we support instead of some of the ideals we share. But a few short weeks later, Thanksgiving reminds us that no matter our differences, we are still one people, part of something bigger than ourselves,” Obama said.
