Michelle and I couldn't be more excited to officially break ground on the Obama Presidential Center on the South Side of Chicago. Tune in live:

Right now, state legislatures across the country are setting new boundaries for state legislative and congressional districts. And in many states, Republicans are drawing maps that allow them to hold onto power.

Happy 97th birthday, President Carter! Thank you for the extraordinary example of lifelong service that you've set for all of us.

It’s always good to be from Chicago, but this year is especially sweet. Congratulations to the @wnbachicagosky  for making it to the WNBA finals, and to the leg @Candace_Parkernd , , for making all of us proud. We’ll be rooting for you.

And of course, I’m excited for my @whitesox  to be back in the playoffs. It’s going to be hard to top a walk-off home run on the Field of Dreams, but if any team can do it, it’s this one. Go Sox!

I was deeply saddened to learn about the passing of General Ray Odierno after a battle with cancer. He devoted his life to serving this country, and for that I will always be grateful. Michelle and I send our thoughts to his wife Linda, and their children.

General Colin Powell understood what was best in this country, and tried to bring his own life, career, and public statements in line with that ideal. Michelle and I will always look to him as an example of what America—and Americans—can and should be.

Kobe was a legend on the court and just getting started in what would have been just as meaningful a second act. To lose Gianna is even more heartbreaking to us as parents. Michelle and I send love and prayers to Vanessa and the entire Bryant family on an unthinkable day.

Congratulations to my friend, President@JoeBiden ! This is your time.

I wrote out some thoughts on how to make this moment a real turning point to bring about real change––and pulled together some resources to help young activists sustain the momentum by channeling their energy into concrete action.

Here’s my statement on today’s violence at the Capitol.

Everyone depends on the USPS. Seniors for their Social Security, veterans for their prescriptions, small businesses trying to keep their doors open. They can't be collateral damage for an administration more concerned with suppressing the vote than suppressing a virus.
