Some high school students were left completely speechless after former president of the United States, Barack Obama crashed their classroom on the first day back at school.
McKinley Tech students, in Washington DC, were still settling into their new classes on Friday when Obama casually walked in, leaving them pleasantly surprised.
“You guys don’t mind me crashing right?” Obama asked, as his audience struggled to maintain composure.
Obama then joined their circle and started to tell them why it was important for him to meet people their age during his time in office.
He said: “One of the things I did throughout my presidency was I’d meet with groups of young people everywhere I went, whether it was here in the United States or when I was traveling overseas. Just to kind of hear from them, find out what they’re interested in, because I do believe that most of the problems we have are going to be solved by you.
Later, Obama took to Instagram to share videos of his day out and wrote: “Make us proud. You’re the next generation of leaders, and we need you.”
His spokesman Keith Schiller told The Hill that Friday’s visit was a part Obama’s “ongoing conversation with young people.”
