President Obama Addresses Terrorism From Oval Office – Watch Video!
President Barack Obama addressed the nation from the Oval Office on Sunday night to discuss the government’s plan to battle terrorism, and specifically the terrorist group ISIS. Watch the speech here!
Anxiety among U.S. citizens has been on the rise following last month’s terrorist attacks in Paris, in which over 100 people were killed during a series of shootings and explosions carried out by ISIS militants. The public trust in Obama’s handling of terrorist threats has reached a record low, with only 40 percent of Americans approving of his strategy.
Many of Obama’s critics have accused him of not taking the threat of ISIS seriously enough, as well as not having a viable strategy to defeat the dangerous extremist group. In Sunday’s address, the President will try and reassure a nervous nation. This marks the third time in Obama’s presidency that he will use the White House’s headquarters to address the United States. His previous Oval Office speeches were both held in 2010, one following the Gulf of Mexico oil spill and the other following the end of the Iraq war.
