President Obama to speak about U.S. economy at White House
On Friday, President Barack Obama will talk about the United States’ economic woes in remarks at the White House. The White House reported that Obama will address the state of the economy, including the debt crisis in Europe, which continues to weigh on the U.S. Obama is also expected to call on Congress to pass proposals he says would put construction workers, teachers, and first responders back to work.
The president’s statement in the White House briefing room comes at the heels of a rough patch for the re-election campaign. Last week, a dismal jobs report raised new fears that the nation’s economic recovery has slowed. The Obama campaign raised less money than Republican opponent Mitt Romney last month.
