Obama Press Conference at G20 Summit

Hosted by  • 

Since Friday, French President François Hollande has said repeatedly that "France is at war." Today at the G20 Summit in Turkey, President Obama took questions from an auditorium full of reporters from around the world. Rather than a change, the President proposed an intensification of strategies against ISIS. Asked about the wisdom of taking in refugees, many of whom are fleeing terrorism, the President again defended American policy."Our nations can welcome refugees who are desperately seeking safety and ensure our own security, we can and must do both."

Michael Crowley, senior foreign policy reporter for Politico, has more on the President's speech.
