Michelle Obama, the former first lady, said that her husband, former President Barack Obama, could have built his presidential library in any part of the world since many people feel that he is “their president.”
When speaking at the Obama Foundation Summit at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Obama explained that Chicago’s Jackson Park was chosen as the site for the Obama Presidential Center because of its proximity. The former first lady adds that she and Barack do things with a strategy.

Obama then adds that the library could have been built outside of the United States as there are many people who feel like he is their president. “New York wanted it. Hawaii wants it. Because it’s also an economic engine,” says Michelle.
According to Washington Examiner, the Barack Obama Presidential Library will be the first fully digital presidential library.
