WATCH LIVE: Obama's final press conference as president

President Obama is set to deliver his final press conference as commander in chief on Wednesday from the White House briefing room.

The event will mark the final time the 44th president of the United States will take questions from the press while in office, and he is expected to discuss his thoughts and expectations of his successor Donald Trump.

Wednesday's presser comes on the heels of Obama granting the commutation of sentences to 209 individuals and pardons to 64 others, including the controversial sentence of Chelsea Manning for leaking documents to Wikileaks in 2010, one of his final acts as president.

The press conference will begin at 2:15 p.m. EST.
