'You made me a better man,' President Obama writes in thank you letter to Americans

President Barack Obama wrote a thank you letter to the American people on Thursday, expressing appreciation to the nation for the chance to serve. 
He wrote: 
"All that I've learned in my time in office, I've learned from you. You made me a better President, and you made me a better man," Obama wrote on his last day in office before President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration.

The president wrote about times when he witnessed technological and social progress and touched on major events such as the economic crisis.

He also asked Americans to throw themselves into building a better future, "not just when there's an election."

"And when the arc of progress seems slow, remember: America is not the project of any one person,'" the president wrote.

Kanye West was not asked to play 'traditional' Donald Trump inauguration

Kanye West was not asked to perform at Donald Trump's inauguration, which will be a "traditionally American" event, the chief organiser has said.
There has been speculation since the star told a concert crowd he would have voted for Mr Trump - if he had voted - and then turned up at Trump Tower.
But Tom Barrack, the Presidential Inaugural Committee chair, told CNN the ceremony is "not the venue" for West.

"The venue we have for entertainment is filled out, it's perfect, it's going to be typically and traditionally American, and Kanye is a great guy but we just haven't asked him to perform. We move on with our agenda."
