Last month, I spoke with some of the incredible small business leaders working on the South and West sides of Chicago. As we build the Obama Presidential Center, we’ll work closely with these businesses and hope the Center helps boost economic growth across the city.
One of my favorite White House traditions was telling Thanksgiving jokes – which at least I thought were funny. Here’s a look back at some of my favorites:
Wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving! As we celebrate, let's give thanks for all the blessings in our lives and give back when we can. We’re also thinking of the brave men and women serving our country far from their home.
But voters in some states—including Florida, Texas, and Wisconsin—are still affected by gerrymandering. That’s why we’ve got to stay in the fight and keep working to stop partisan gerrymandering once and for all. Join us: bit.ly/3V0loFo
Thanks in part to the NDRC, states that were once gerrymandered by Republicans—Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Colorado, Minnesota—are now highly competitive. And that’s how it should be—voters should choose their representatives, not the other way around.
One reason the balance of power in the House of Representatives is so close is because, for the first time in a decade, there were enough competitive districts at play. Thanks to the work of @DemRedistrict, Americans voted on the fairest congressional map of the last 40 years.
We can and must do more to reduce gun violence in America. nytimes.com/live/2022/11/2…
I’m inspired by the next generation of leaders—especially those who joined us last week at our @ObamaFoundation Democracy Forum. Their ideas and insights will help strengthen democracy, and carry it into the future. Take a look back at our day together:
On the eve of Trans Day of Remembrance, the LGBTQ+ community in Colorado Springs was terrorized by gun violence. We join in mourning the loss of life, and stand together to eradicate hate against the LGBTQ+ community—today and always. Here's how to help: abcnews.go.com/US/colorado-sp…

Best of luck to @USMNT at the World Cup! Michelle and I are incredibly proud of what you’ve accomplished so far, and we’ll be rooting for you all the way.
Happy birthday, @JoeBiden! There’s a lot to celebrate these days, and I couldn’t be more grateful that America has you sitting behind the desk.
Yesterday @bchesky and I had the chance to meet with our inaugural recipients of The Voyager Scholarship. Michelle, Brian, and I can’t wait to work with these talented young people over the next few years as they pursue careers in public service.
Our @ObamaFoundation Leaders are working hard to tackle some of our toughest challenges. It was great having some of them join @Trevornoah and me on @TheDailyShow to share more about their work.
I’m happy to announce that we’ll be launching a new and expanded Leaders United States program in the coming months that can help more young people put their idealism to work. Michelle and I are proud to support these young leaders through our work at the Obama Foundation.
Today at the @ObamaFoundation Democracy Forum, we brought leaders from around the world together to share ideas and discuss ways to strengthen democracy.
I'm in New York City for the @ObamaFoundation’s #DemocracyForum with leaders from around the world to discuss how we can strengthen our democracy and support the next generation of leaders working on some of our most important challenges. Tune in: twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1…
Speaker Nancy Pelosi will go down as one of most accomplished legislators in American history—breaking barriers, opening doors for others, and working every day to serve the American people. I couldn’t be more grateful for her friendship and leadership.
But the fight to protect DACA recipients remains unfinished. Earlier this year I sat down with a group of Dreamers, whose stories speak to all the ways in which they strengthen our communities. Congress should act now and resolve their status once and for all.
Some good news from Arizona: voters approved a ballot initiative that will make Dreamers eligible for in-state tuition. Credit goes to the organizers who shared their families' stories and assembled a bipartisan coalition of supporters. 12news.com/article/news/l…
Rest in peace, Virginia. We know you’re up there dancing.
Among @MichelleObama's many talents is the fact that she is a fantastic writer. In her new book, The Light We Carry, she shares the tools and lessons she’s learned that help her navigate times of uncertainty. It's a book you'll want to go back to over and over again. twitter.com/michelleobama/…
Congratulations to all the organizers and volunteers in South Dakota on the results last week – and to all those whose work to expand Medicaid has made it possible for millions of Americans to access health care.
It’s why we pushed so hard for the ACA – because health care should be a right, not a privilege. But just as important, it’s a testament to what can happen when citizens are willing to grab some clipboards, get some signatures, and build a coalition to bring about change.
Last week, voters in South Dakota chose to expand access to Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, making it possible for more than 40,000 South Dakotans to access health care. With this good news, 39 states have now expanded Medicaid since 2012. nbcnews.com/news/us-news/-…
Getting the right folks in these jobs – and many others – was an important step. But we can’t rest. We need to keep speaking out against dangerous candidates, keep supporting good ones, and keep voting up and down the ballot. Our democracy depends on it.
.@Adrian_Fontes was just elected Secretary of State in Arizona. Adrian’s opponent was at the Capitol on January 6th, and suggested he might reject Democratic votes in the future. Adrian believes every vote should count, and now he’ll be able to make it happen in Arizona.
.@JocelynBenson has been doing a great job as Michigan’s Secretary of State. She was just re-elected, and will continue to make sure every Michiganders vote counts in every election.
Let's celebrate Democratic candidates like @CiscoForNevada, who will be Nevada’s next Secretary of State. His opponent spread conspiracy theories and lies about voting machines. Cisco will protect the integrity of Nevada’s elections.
I can't emphasize enough how much Secretary of State races matter. They don’t always get the most attention, but they’re crucial to ensuring we have fair elections—and this time, voters across the country chose candidates who will fight for democracy.
Thanks to all those who have proudly served our country in uniform, and the families who have served alongside them. We owe you so much—on Veterans Day, and every day.
Exciting news 🎉:@nhannahjoness,@lenirobredoo,@noUpsidee, and@jelani99 are some of the speakers who will be joining us at the#DemocracyForumm to showcase democracy in action around the world.j

For democracy to thrive, we need to tell better stories about ourselves, and how we can live together despite our differences.   On November 17th, I'll be joining global leaders working to protect democracy at our @ObamaFoundation #DemocracyForum. obama.org/democracy-foru…
In this election, millions of people cast their ballots for an America that is more fair, more just, more equal, and more free. We’re not there yet, but this keeps us moving forward. Our democracy is resilient as long as we stay engaged and active between elections.
Don’t sit this election out. Make your plan and go vote today. If you run into any issues voting or have questions, call our voter assistance hotline at (833) 336-8683.

Midterm elections matter. Don’t let anyone convince you that your vote won’t make a difference. Show up at the polls today and vote for Democrats up and down the ballot.
The kind of slash and burn politics that we’re seeing right now, that doesn’t have to be who we are. We can be better – and your vote tomorrow will help us get there.
A simple message from @JoeBiden and me: Vote!
Let’s get this done. Go to IWillVote.com today to make a plan to vote.
Our democracy is on the ballot. If we want to build on the progress that @JoeBiden and Democrats have made so far, then we’re going to need everybody to make their voices heard on Tuesday. Show up. Vote on November 8th. Encourage your friends, family, neighbors to join you.
The more things change, the more things stay the same. I’m just as proud to stand—and look short—beside this guy today as I was back then. Pennsylvania, it’s time to show up and vote for @JohnFetterman for Senate!
I’m fired up to be in Philadelphia with my friend @JoeBiden to make sure everybody turns out to vote in this election. Tune in live. twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1…
Pennsylvania, make sure you vote for @JoshShapiroPA for Governor, @SummerForPA and @ChrisForPA for the U.S. House, and @JohnFetterman for the U.S. Senate. They'll work to make a difference for folks like you. Make a plan to vote at IWillVote.com.
We only have three days left until Election Day. Tune in as I share why it’s important to support Democratic candidates up and down the ballot in Pennsylvania. twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1…
The only way to make our democracy stronger is if we fight for it. And that starts by electing people who know you, who see you, and who understand what you’re going through.  So vote for Democrats up and down the ballot on Election Day.
When we break down barriers and expose young people to new pathways to success there’s no limit to what they can accomplish. That’s the driving idea behind the @MBK_Alliance program at the @ObamaFoundation. Looking forward to seeing where these young men go next.
This election could set the direction of our country for years to come. It’s that important. So make your voice heard by voting early or on November 8th. Go to IWillVote.com to make a plan.
Arizona, you have a chance to vote for candidates like @krismayes, @Adrian_Fontes, @katiehobbs, and @CaptMarkKelly who will work to build the inclusive, hopeful, forward-looking America we believe in.
I’m in Arizona today to support Democratic candidates who will fight for you. Tune in now. twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1…
You’ve been paying into Social Security your whole life. You earned it. Now, Republicans in Congress want to cut it. Who the hell do they think they are?

Because if enough of us make our voices heard, things will get better and we will build a country that is more fair, more just, more equal, and more free.
