President Obama held his the final news conference of his presidency. He answered questions on a range of topics, such as his future plans and issues that would compel him to speak out. Those issues include systematic discrimination, voter suppression, and efforts to silence dissent. He defended his decision to commute the sentence of Chelsea Manning, who in 2013 received a 35-year jail sentence for passing hundreds of thousands of classified military documents to WikiLeaks. The president said due process had been served. He ended the briefing on an optimistic note, saying “I believe in the American people,” and a “good luck” to the press corps. close
