With a final "Yes We Can," President Barack Obama on Tuesday urged Americans to stand up for US values and reject discrimination as the country transitions to the presidency of Republican Donald Trump.
In an emotional speech, Obama thanked his family, and wiped his eyes as he addressed his wife and thanked Joe Biden.
Here are is what Twitterati had to say about Obama leaving the White House:
