"Happy birthday to my brother, my friend, @BarackObama", Biden wrote. Check out additional tributes below. There have also been some celebrities who've gotten in on the fun, including R&B singer John Legend and filmmaker Matthew A. Cherry.

Barack Obama was the first Black American man to hold the position of President of the United States.

It was not immediately clear what exact numbers Trump was referring to in claiming improvement over his predecessor, but if his remark was in reference to approval ratings at this point in his presidency relative to Obama's, his tweet would be incorrect.

"A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters now believe the improving economy is due more to Trump than Obama, while 40% think it is more the result of the policies Obama put in place before he left office", adds the report.

Last year, the Illinois legislature passed a bill declaring August 4 Barack Obama Day, to celebrate "the 44th President of the United States of America who began his career serving the People of Illinois in both the Illinois State Senate and the United States Senate, and dedicated his life to protecting the rights of Americans and building bridges across communities".

A recent poll from Rasmussen shows President Trump's approval rating at 50 percent, which is higher than what former President Obama's approval rating was at the same point in his presidency. He captioned the image, "Our lunches together were a highlight of every week at the White House". "Last week's trip to Dog Tag Bakery was no different".

BARACK Obama has celebrated his 57th birthday surrounded by family and friends, with wife Michelle leading the tributes to the former United States president.
