In just two short days, President Barack Obama, the 44th President of the United States of America will transmit office to President-elect Donald J. Trump. While the Republican administration is busy getting ready to take over the Oval Office, the Senate, and the House, the much-relaxed Obama has been busy winding down his presidency.

Eight years ago, the young senator from Chicago fought a brutal and sometimes racially charged campaign to become the 44th President of the USA. After serving two terms as the US President from January 2008 – January 2016, number 44 recently made his farewell speech to the nation.

However, on January 20, 2017, millions will tune in on their television set to watch the grand occasion of Donald J. Trump’s inauguration. The President-elect will be sworn in to serve as the leader of the United States for the next four years.
