White House, Obama, confident, safe, all in one sentence. Amazing!
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest suggested that Americans should not be concerned about ISIL attacking the United States, suggesting that they trust President Obama to keep them safe.
“I think the American people should be confident that their commander in chief and that their government is expending significant time and resources to ensure that we are using every tool at our disposal to protect the American people,” Earnest said, in response to a question from the Huffington Post’s Sam Stein during the White House press briefing.
Earnest insisted that Obama was “clear-eyed” about the threat posed by Islamic State terrorists, and would explain his military strategy to the American people to “degrade and destroy” the terrorist group.
He added that Americans should watch Obama’s primetime speech tomorrow to lear more about the threat posed by ISIL.
