State of the Union... in emojis

When the 44th president of the United States, Barack Obama, held his yearly speech to the nation in january, the british newspaper The Guardian decided to create a storytelling-page by translating parts of the speech into emojis.

Barack Obama said his address to Congress this year was all about “finding areas where we agree, so we can deliver for the American people”. And if there’s one thing we can all agree upon, it’s emojis, the newspaper explains on it’s website.
