In this video clip, Obama shares his visit to McKinley Tech where he meets a group of students. In the video’s caption, Obama mentions how he is hopeful about the future because of these young people.
In this clip, we see him seated in a circle with the other students, mingling with them and being comfortable around them. One could say that he’s the people’s president indeed!

Last night, the ex-Presidents got together in Texas to support all our fellow Americans rebuilding from this year’s hurricanes. We’ve seen a lot of hardship and heartbreak in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. But in the darkness, we’ve seen shining examples of what’s best about America. Neighbors pitching in to help their neighbors, veterans dropping in to help people they’ve never met, Americans taking care of one another, looking out for one another, without regard for what we look like, where we come from, or how we pray. If you want to know who we are, what America is, how we step up when required – that’s it. Selflessly. Compassionately. Without fear. And for as long as it takes.
