He continued, “Let us demonstrate our collective strength to face the challenges that matter most in people’s lives and deliver progress. We have a lot – so much more to do, then Let’s get to work. And thanks to all of you.” Told.
But as the president turned right to leave the podium, he paused for a second, wondering whether he had to get down from here. The host then read a thank you note, which caught the 79-year-old’s attention.
The video has been viewed nearly two million times. Twitter users showered comments.
