President Barack Obama said Tuesday afternoon he was making some “last minute changes” to his final State of the Union address that he would deliver later in the evening (at 9 p.m. ET).
In a live stream that was posted on Facebook, users were taken into the Oval Office where Obama addressed them at his desk, the speech in front of him.
“As I’ve said before, part of my goal here is to make sure people understand that we’re going to leave it all on the field,” Obama said. “I’m going to talk a little bit about why it’s so important for you to be involved.”
The president did not specify what kind of changes were being made or why, but he did say: “There’s a lot of work that still needs to be done and I want to make sure the American people understand some of the proposals that I think make sure we have opportunity, security in this society and that we’re keeping Americans safe at a time when there’s a lot of big changes taking place around the world.”
Hello, Facebook! In just a few hours, I’m heading to the Capitol to give my final State of the Union address. But before I do, I want to share a few thoughts with you.
