President Barack Obama's new official portrait unveiled
WASHINGTON (KABC) -- The White House released a new official portrait of President Barack Obama, just days away from his second inauguration.
The photograph, taken in the oval office last month, shows Mr. Obama smiling broadly with his arms crossed. It was taken by official White House photographer Pete Souza.
In a video released by the Presidential Inaugural Committee, the president talked about the meaning of the upcoming ceremony.
"The theme of this year's inauguration is 'Our People, Our Future.' I really believe that when our people are succeeding, when they've got the tools that they need to get a great education, get a good job, look after their kids, have some basic security, that there's nothing that can stop America," the president said.
The inauguration ceremony is Monday, which is Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Eyewitness News anchor David Ono will be in Washington, D.C. to cover the event. He will have live reports on Eyewitness News starting Sunday.
