Hours before Donald Trump takes his oath of office, Obama supporters are offering a simple final message to the outgoing president: Thank you.
On social media Friday, the hashtag #ThankYouObamas began trending on Twitter as people shared photos and appreciation for the nation’s first African-American family.
Many pointed out that despite facing criticism, Obama and his family never lashed out and acted with "grace and integrity."
Regardless of political views, the last 8 years were filled with dignity & grace at the White House. That will be missed. #ThankYouObamas— Brenda Rothstein (@dislovefromMN) January 20, 2017
But while many thanked the president and the first family, others tweeted that they were thankful Obama was finally leaving.
