Obama ignited hope in many with what he described as an inclusive US, saying the US he knows comprises “Americans of every party, every background, every faith who believe that we are stronger together – black, white, Latino, Asian, Native American; young and old; gay, straight, men, women, folks with disabilities, all pledging allegiance, under the same proud flag, to this big, bold country that we love”.

Some Twitter users wasted no time in declaring their love for the United States and their pride in being its citizens.

Some, however, focused on the shortcomings of Obama’s presidential term.

Taking a jab at Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s “Make America great again” slogan, Obama boldly declared in his speech “America is already great”, adding the country did not need Trump to ensure its greatness. Several users echoed the US president’s sentiments.

The speech had some believing in the “American Dream”.
