President Barack Obama continues to pay close attention to the number of days he has left in office.

“I’ve got a little over 1,200 days left in office,” he told a crowd at an Organizing for Action event Monday night.

“I care about one thing and one thing only,” Obama said Wednesday during a speech at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois, “and that’s how to use every minute of the 1,276 days remaining in my term to make this country work for working Americans again.”

He’s definitely thinking about his post-presidency, too, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Wednesday. Obama’s already asked his advisers to search for a location for his presidential library, the paper reports.

At press time, Obama has 1,275 days and 10 hours left until he leaves office on Jan. 20, 2017.
