As president, I saw Chancellor Merkel lead through crises with her wise pragmatism, good humor, and unrelenting moral compass—and I feel lucky to call her a friend. Grateful for the chance to visit the @NMAAHC today, a reminder that America is a constant work in progress. https://t.co/CggYWllm31
Last week, I stopped by the Obama Presidential Center construction site.
It’s great to see this dream start to come to life on the South Side and to meet some of the extraordinary people who are helping to build it. https://t.co/ANBTwWy6DQ
For more than a month, we’ve known this day was coming—but that doesn’t make it any less devastating. Here are my thoughts from when we first saw the draft ruling: https://t.co/aegHc7AoTm
Across the country, states have already passed bills restricting choice. If you're looking for ways to respond, @PPFA, @USOWomen, and many other groups have been sounding the alarm on this issue for years—and will continue to be on the front lines of this fight. https://t.co/PpXBEcbL2S
Today, the Supreme Court not only reversed nearly 50 years of precedent, it relegated the most intensely personal decision someone can make to the whims of politicians and ideologues—attacking the essential freedoms of millions of Americans.
Progress isn’t always a straight line.
Today’s Supreme Court decision is wrong but Congress passing the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act is a modest but real step forward. And the fight will go on, thanks to the activists, survivors, and families who continue to demand action.
50 years ago, committed women and girls from around the country worked with Congress to pass Title IX and equal the playing field. @ESPN's 37 Words documentary looks into the impact of Title IX and the work still in front of us. https://t.co/PavwzUuTPg
Michelle and I started the @ObamaFoundation's Futures Series to connect the young leaders of tomorrow with the trailblazers of today. It’s great to see the impact that it’s already having on students from the South Side. https://t.co/0Ga97LzU09
Great news for parents: The COVID-19 vaccine is approved for kids under 5. As appointments ramp up, you’ll be able to find a vaccine at pediatricians’ offices, pharmacies, and more. It's safe and effective—this is another big step to protect our loved ones and communities.
On World Refugee Day, we recognize the challenges that refugees face, honor their courage, and celebrate their contributions to our country.
If you would like to welcome refugees as your neighbors, join @WelcomeUS: https://t.co/6CDBXTZzEP https://t.co/CWzOXn8QG9
Happy Father's Day to all the dads and father-figures celebrating today! Of all that I’ve done in my life, I’m most proud of being Malia and Sasha's dad...and the family's designated photographer. https://t.co/6aZgq3Fuzw
Today, I hope you’ll take some time to celebrate and learn more about Juneteenth. Here are some ways to recognize this important day. https://t.co/BmqY8NnXac
We remember that even in the darkest hours, there is cause to hope for tomorrow’s light. Let us all recommit ourselves today to honoring those who fought over generations to steer our country closer to our highest ideals.
Juneteenth is a time to commemorate the anniversary of the delayed news of freedom reaching the enslaved Black folks in Galveston, Texas. Today, we remember that struggle for freedom as we reflect on how far we’ve come as a country—and on the work that remains undone.
With four championships in eight years, the @Warriors leave no doubt of their place as one of the NBA’s greatest dynasties. Congrats to Finals MVP Steph, Draymond, Klay, Coach Kerr and the rest of Dub Nation for such sustained excellence.
We need to build democracy for the future—and what gives me hope is the promise and potential of the next generation of leaders coming up. In Copenhagen last week, I had the chance to meet some of those young folks working with the @ObamaFoundation. https://t.co/6tU2VMGNp2
If we're going to protect our democracy, we need to keep up the fight for fair maps. @DemRedistrict is at the forefront of that effort—and we need to help them build on the progress they've already made protecting our free and fair elections: https://t.co/gSTCdrkrOQ https://t.co/0wz0t89nde
For the 10th anniversary of DACA, I met with these inspiring young people who shared their stories, the impact that DACA had on their lives, and the work that remains to support them. https://t.co/Mgl02g5w6m
For all they have done for our nation, and all they will continue to do, DACA recipients and their families deserve better. On the 10th anniversary of DACA, let's redouble our efforts to build a commonsense immigration system that offers these Americans a pathway to citizenship. https://t.co/K0FH8OEc2l
