President Barack Obama, who was elected the first black United States president in 2008, delivered his eighth and final State of the Union address on Tuesday night.
In the speech, Obama echoed the theme of "change" used in his first campaign, saying the U.S. needs to "fix" its politics to improve its standard of living. He touched on multiple key issues from his time in office, including immigration, income inequality and terrorism.
"The future we want – opportunity and security for our families, a rising standard of living and a sustainable, peaceful planet for our kids – all that is within our reach. But it will only happen if we work together," he said.
"It will only happen if we can have rational, constructive debates."
