The former first couple jetted off for a beach vacation immediately after President Trump’s inauguration on Jan. 20. They plan to live in Washington, D.C., until their younger daughter, Sasha, graduates high school.

They have also launched the Obama Foundation, which will “focus on developing the next generation of citizens — and what it means to be a good citizen in the 21st century,” according to the foundation’s website. The foundation headquarters will be in Chicago’s South Side.
