It is President Trump’s Washington, but a popular former president is still living in it.

Barack Obama, who has kept a relatively low profile in the city, dropped by the Jelleff Club, a branch of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington, on Thursday. He visited with approximately 50 middle school students who were participating in after-school activities.

Obama, who was dressed in a Santa hat and leather jacket, brought gifts and visited with the students and staff for half an hour.

He and former first lady Michelle Obama have made four other surprise visits to D.C. schools and community centers since leaving the White House.

Correction: An earlier version of this article said that Jelleff Club is located in Northeast Washington. It is located in Northwest Washington. The post has been updated.
