One of the reasons I was inspired to get into community work a few years ago. Shoutout to my partner for getting me a copy. She knows me too well. #APromisedLand

Thanks for sharing Marjon. I hope you get something out of A Promised Land – keep up the good work!

We started the @ObamaFoundation to help a new generation build a better tomorrow. And many of them already are, stepping up through the pandemic and protests to demand real change.

On Giving Tuesday, I'm asking you to invest in them:

Let’s all do our part this Thanksgiving to keep people safe and healthy. Celebrate virtually, if you can. Wear a mask. And as always, listen to the experts. The choices you make could save lives.

Michelle and I are eager to bring the Obama Presidential Center to our hometown—a way to honor the city we love, all those who came before us, and pay tribute to people coming together to do extraordinary things.

This was fun. I heard Tim and Fred were listening to some of the songs on my A Promised Land playlist, so I decided to drop in and surprise them. We talked about a lot, from Bob Dylan to old-school mixtapes to the role music played in my memoir.

My memoir, A Promised Land, is out today. I hope you’ll read it. My goal was to give you some insight into the events and people that shaped me during the early years of my presidency. Most of all, I hope it inspires you to see yourself playing a role in shaping a better world.

Music has always played an important role in my life—and that was especially true during my presidency. In honor of my book hitting shelves tomorrow, I put together this playlist featuring some memorable songs from my administration. Hope you enjoy it.

More than anyone else, I wrote my book for young people—as an invitation to once again remake the world, and to bring about, through hard work, determination, and a big dose of imagination, an America that finally aligns with all that is best in us.

Today, we’re reminded of our solemn obligation: to serve our veterans as well as they have served us. To all of our veterans and service members, we’re forever grateful for your commitment to our country—and your willingness to put it all on the line for us. Thank you.

Rahul, you're helping make democracy work today. Thank you.

There's a reason some folks are trying to make it hard for you to vote: They know that if you do, things change. And that's why the answer isn't to stay at home. It's to turn out like never before and show them what this country stands for.

If you are in line to vote before polls close, you have the right to vote. Stay in line for as long as it takes. If you have any questions, call the voter hotline at 833-336-8683. We’ve got this.

This Election Day, everything is on the line. Our jobs. Our health care. Whether or not we get this pandemic under control. But here’s the good news: today, you can choose change. You can elect @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris. Let’s win this thing.
