President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama sent their last Christmas salutations on Saturday from the White House on Saturday. In the greetings, the Presidential couple was seen highlighting the common values of uniting Americans of all faiths.
"The idea that we are our brother's keeper and our sister's keeper. That we should treat others as we would want to be treated," Michelle Obama said.
"Those are values that help guide not just my family's Christian faith, but that of Jewish Americans, and Muslim Americans; nonbelievers and Americans of all backgrounds," the president added.
At a point when the entire nation is deeply divided after a brutal presidential campaign, the Obamas' seasonal greeting surely brought a smile on the face of the residents. The Obamas were seen very jovial in their greeting. The president was also seen giggling when a flashback to the filming of their first Christmas message in 2009 was shown.
Barack Obama used the address to re-cap his time in office and said that the country was much stronger than it had been than when he succeeded George W. Bush.
"Together, we fought our way back from the worst recession in 80 years, and got unemployment to a nine-year low," the president said.
"We made America more respected around the world, took on the mantle of leadership in the fight to protect this planet for our kids, and much, much more," he added.
The couple also thanked US troops and their families as a part of the custom.
