“From the Obama family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving,” he added.

The Obamas volunteered at food banks on multiple occasions during his presidency. Obama last year helped out ahead of Thanksgiving at the Greater Chicago Food Depository.

President Donald Trump , meanwhile, posted a message in all-caps alongside a slide wishing all Americans “a very happy and blessed” holiday from himself and first lady Melania Trump.
