In a brief YouTube video released Wednesday, President Barack Obama said his final State of the Union address next week will showcase his legacy and highlight optimism for the country.

Dressed in shirtsleeves and a blue tie, the president sat on his desk in the Oval Office in the video and expressed confidence about the upcoming year. He is scheduled to deliver the address to both chambers of Congress at the Capitol next Tuesday night at 9 p.m.

“Since I took office seven years ago in the midst of crisis, I don’t think I’ve ever been more optimistic about a year ahead than I am now,” he said.

In his spare time, he’s been working on his address. “My last one,” he said.

The speech will focus on the nation’s “remarkable progress.” He also noted that he wants to focus on “the big things that will guarantee an even stronger, better, more prosperous America for our kids. That’s what’s on my mind.

Denis McDonough, White House Chief of Staff, said in a news release, “We still have work to do, but there’s no question: Together, we’ve brought America back.”

“The budget agreement we reached helps avoid senseless cuts and will unlock critical investments in our national defense as we battle terrorism,” McDonough stated. “We have verifiably cut off Iran’s paths to a nuclear bomb and fundamentally changed a policy in Cuba that failed to induce change for over half a century.”
