Apologies..
I first heard of this speech on CNN Money channel between stock market talk..

Even THEY showed a clip of the last part where he addresses "democracy's & strongarm politics."

They even mentioned that " Pres Obama didn't have to name Trump or Putin, to know who he was referring to".

Applause

This speech watched worldwide, just for a moment restored some dignity back to our America.

We miss our President Obama.
