His days in office are coming to a close, but President Obama is still aiming to make long-term goals. Today he returns, this time around sitting down with National Geographic about the well-being of our Earth. The clip finds Obama on Midway’s 1,100-acre Sand Island where he took in the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument.
He credited his mother and Hawaii for his love of nature and spoke in-depth about his concerns about the future of the oceans and the planet. Obama stated “I’m 55. I’ll be leaving the presidency and beginning a new phase. My oldest daughter just graduated from high school. This is a time when you start thinking about what you are leaving behind.” Check out the clip after the jump and stay tuned for much more coming very soon!
