Former President Barack Obama makes surprise visit to DC school

Obama Visits Mc Kinley Technology High School in Washington D.C

"Hey, how's it going everybody?" he said as he entered a classroom of students meeting.

Barack Obama has delighted students at a Washington DC school after walking into their classroom unannanounced.

Mr Obama had personally appealed to Mr Trump to keep the programme, which prevented almost 800,000 people who came to the USA as children from being deported.

Heading back to the school turned into a huge surprise for one of a group of McKinley Tech High's students at D.C. The students were highly surprised after a surprise visit of former President Barack Obama. On Friday, Mr Obama stopped by McKinley Tech High School to welcome students back for the new academic year.

'You guys don't mind me crashing right?' he asked, as his audience struggled to maintain composure. The encounter was captured on video posted to Obama's Instagram account.

In the video, a small group of students can be seen gasping in surprise as Obama walks into a room with a cheery "How's it going, everybody?" "You're the next generation of leaders, and we need you".

One of the things I did throughout my presidency was meet with groups of young people everywhere I went, whether it was here in the United States or when I was traveling overseas.

"Proud of these McKinley Tech students-inspiring young minds that make me hopeful about our future", he wrote.

The objective of the visit was to encourage "the next generation of leaders" and is part of an ongoing series of conversations Obama is having with young people, Lewis' statement said. "Make us proud", his Instagram caption reads.

At the end of Obama's visit, he said to one of the students, "Remember what I say: Don't back down".
