After 8 exhausting years in the White House, Michelle confessed that she and Barack are rediscovering the pleasure of each others company, and reviving their romance:

The Obama Presidential Center was to be built in Chicago, in the city's historic Jackson Park, but the project's location may have to be changed.
In May 2018, an advocacy group "Protect Our Parks" filed a lawsuit asking a federal judge to prevent the building of the Center on land which has been reserved for public use.
"Protect Our Parks" claims that the Obama Presidential Center will infringe on the citizen's rights to free access to every part of the park.
According to the Illinois legislature, Jackson Park is declared free to all persons and held in public trust for the benefit of the citizens of the City of Chicago and State of Illinois.
