It's back to the grind for President Obama, who is expected to attend his first public event since President Trump's inauguration in his adopted hometown of Chicago on Monday. The timing of his scheduled speech comes just a few days before Trump marks his 100 days in office later next week, the New York Times reported.

And the Chicago event isn't the only scheduled appearance Obama is expected to make over the next four weeks. He'll also visit Boston for an awards ceremony, deliver private speeches across the U.S., and appear with Chancellor Angela Merkel at the Brandenburg Gate in Germany.

Despite Trump's immigration ban, his "wiretapping claims," and his administration's plans to dismantle a piece of legislation that has defined Obama's era, the 44th commander-in-chief has mostly remained silent. In fact, when he did appear in public in New York, let's just say people went wild--his presence seemingly relieving liberal anxiety. 

So where has former president been since January? He spent some time with his family in Palm Springs, Calif., immediately after Trump's inauguration. After, he traveled to a private island in the British Virgin Islands where the infamous photo of the former commander-in-chief kitesurfing was taken. And most recently, Obama and First Lady Michelle took an extended vacation in French Polynesia--following up on a promise he'd made to his wife to take her somewhere warm after his term ended.
