The President of the United States has spent his first message to the upcoming Paris conference on climate change and called on his compatriots to mobilize for the future of the planet.
“Hello, Facebook! I finally have my own page. “The new user is not like the others. It is the present as himself as “father, husband and 44th president of the United States.” Barack Obama on Monday launched his personal Facebook page, President Obama. “I hope you will perceive this place as a place where it is possible to have real conversations on the most important issues facing our country,” said the person. The new page “will offer Americans a new place where they can share their thoughts with the president on issues that interest them most,” urges Reuters Kori Schulman, associate director of digital strategy for the White House.
Barack Obama has spent his first message to COP21, the next climate conference in Paris. In a video, recorded in the garden of the White House, the US president urges his fellow citizens to mobilize for the future of the planet. “I want to ensure that the world is capable of transmitting to future generations the beauty of this planet that God has given us,” he said before his next visit to France from November 30. “If all of America is mobilized to this vital project, then we can be confident of doing the right thing for future generations and to our children all the blessings we have received.”
“I want to ensure that the world is capable of transmitting to future generations the beauty of this planet that God has given us.”
Only three hours after launch, the page had around 190,000 mentions “Like”. Organizing for Action, the organization that has worked to the election of the US president, has long used an account bearing the name of Barack Obama but opening this new page will allow the latter to apply directly and the first person to its subscribers. Barack Obama is accompanied by almost 71 million followers on Twitter. ThePOTUS account was launched in May 2015. Unlike the official report of the US executive (WhiteHouse) supplied by its teams, the tweets are written exclusively by the president.
