Dad, husband, President, citizen.
Today, books that shaped my life—and many others—are being challenged in schools, bookstores, and libraries by people who disagree with certain ideas or perspectives. Often, these “banned books” are written by or feature people of color and members of LGBTQ communities.
Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy—and, as the late Congressman John Lewis reminded us, our most precious right.

Michelle and I were lucky enough to know Her Majesty The Queen. Back when we were just beginning to navigate life as President and First Lady, she welcomed us to the world stage with extraordinary generosity. Our thoughts are with the Royal Family and those mourning her passing.
Congratulations to the @LVAces on their first WNBA title! It’s been fun to watch Coach @BeckyHammon and this team play this season.
This article is a reminder of how focused government action can make a real difference in our kids’ lives. We can do more to make sure every child has a fair shot.

The Inflation Reduction Act will lower the cost of healthcare and prescription drugs, while also taking important steps to protect our planet.
 
@POTUS and @VP continue to deliver for the American people—and that’s worth celebrating.
Michelle and I are proud to join @BChesky in announcing the first recipients of The Voyager Scholarship, which supports 100 rising college juniors as they pursue a career in public service.

I can’t wait to see what these young people accomplish!
I heard about the work that Coach Amaker and the young people at Harvard are doing to build community, so I decided to drop by one of their meetings. Thanks for letting me be an honorary member of The Breakfast Club!
Last week, Michelle and I unveiled our official White House portraits by Robert McCurdy and Sharon Sprung. Take a look as we reflect on what that moment meant to us:
Today, we remember the nearly 3,000 lives we lost on September 11, 2001. We honor their memory, the courage of our first responders, and the men and women in uniform who continue to keep us safe.

Like so many of you, Michelle and I are grateful to have witnessed Her Majesty’s dedicated leadership, and we are awed by her legacy of tireless, dignified public service. Our thoughts are with her family and the people of the United Kingdom at this difficult time.

When future generations see these portraits by Robert McCurdy and Sharon Sprung in the White House, I hope they get a better, honest sense of who Michelle and I were. And I hope they leave with a deeper understanding that if we could make it, they can do remarkable things, too.

I want to thank Robert McCurdy for his extraordinary work on my portrait. Robert is known for his paintings of public figures, and I love how he paints people exactly the way they are. Take a look at the process behind creating the official White House portraits:
Labor Day is about celebrating the working class men and women whose grit and resilience built our country and made our economic progress possible. They’ve raised their voices, advocated for better working conditions, and kept our country going.
Congratulations, Serena, for your heart, skill, intelligence, dedication, and grace. Few athletes have inspired more people both in and beyond their sport!
Young leaders like our @ObamaFoundation Scholars give me hope for a brighter future.

Our newest Scholars are working on issues like climate change, mass incarceration, and gender-based violence. I can't wait to see the difference they make together.
Thanks to @EricHolder and @DemRedistrict, more voters will be able to choose their politicians in this next election instead of the other way around.

And what better way to celebrate that progress than to hear from @JohnLegend, @iamwill, and @JayPharoah.
Congratulations to Hawai'i for cruising to their fourth Little League World Series title! I'm so proud of this team. 🤙🏾
This is life changing news for millions of borrowers working to pay back their student loans. It's also a testament to @POTUS, his administration, and all the activists who've been calling for student debt relief for years.
I will always be grateful that we had a once-in-a-century public health leader to guide us through a once-in-a-century pandemic. Few people have touched more lives than Dr. Fauci – and I’m glad he’s not done yet.
