Twitter outrage after Michelle Obama claims 'anywhere' could host husband’s library 1

Mrs Obama made the remarks at the Obama Foundation Summit where it was announced the library would be located in Chicago’s Jackson Park. This location is close to the couple’s old home and near Mrs Obama’s childhood home. Mrs Obama explained: “There’s power in the selection of Jackson Park.

“Barack and I don’t do things incidentally.

“There’s a strategy.”

She then claimed: “Barack’s presidential library could have been anywhere in the world because there are so many people who feel like he is their president.

“New York wanted it. Hawaii wants it. Because it’s also an economic engine.”

Mr Obama’s presidential library is expected to be digitised.

Presidential papers of earlier Presidents are available in presidential libraries which are not administered by the National Archives and Records Administration like the 13 official libraries.

Britain has only one Prime Ministerial Library. 

Gladstone’s Library in Hawarden, Wales is dedicated to the life and works of the four times British Prime Minister, William Gladstone.

It is a residential library offering accommodation to visitors.

Mr Obama was US President from 2009 to 2017.

He defeated John McCain in the 2008 election.

Mitt Romney was his opponent four years later.

Joe Biden was his vice-President.
