Former President Barack Obama wished Americans a “Happy Fourth of July” on Thursday when he tweeted a sweet throwback photo of his family.
He also used the post to mark daughter Malia’s 21st birthday.
“This is always a great day in the Obama family: a chance to celebrate America — and Malia’s birthday, too,” Obama wrote. “Hope all of you are able to get some time with friends, family and fireworks.”

President Donald Trump, however, has hijacked the festivities in Washington, D.C., this year. Tanks will be stationed on the streets of the nation’s capital and military planes will fly overhead. Trump also plans to give a speech.
Obama’s wife, former first lady Michelle Obama, shared the same family photo on Instagram to mark Mother’s Day in May.
