The Video-Tweet segment is targeted to air separately on Thursday, November 25th - Thanksgiving Day. What a special time to uplift the spirit of our President by rendering encouragement and support.

I recognize there are endeavors that are under-way and have yet to unfold, but I am with you Mr. President.
