America is leading the rest of the world, in containing the spread of Ebola, degrading and ultimately destroying ISIL, and addressing the threat posed by climate change. And earlier this week, the President announced the most significant changes to our policy towards Cuba in over 50 years”.
“America’s resurgence is real” said the President.
In his weekly address, President Barack Obama reflected on the strides made by the U.S. in 2014. The President touted job growth, a stronger economy, and better paying jobs for contributing to a brighter future where Americans “Can enter the New Year with new confidence that America is making significant strides where it counts.”
Obama also said the U.S. is making an impact on the global front. “We’re leading the coalition to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIL. We’re leading the global fight to combat the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. We’re leading global efforts to address climate change.”
