Obama: ISIS Poses Serious Threat to All of Us & Must Be Destroyed
President Obama spoke at the White House alongside French President Francois Hollande, declaring that ISIS poses a threat to all of us and must be destroyed.
"Make no mistake. We will win and groups like ISIL will lose," he said, vowing that the American people "will not be terrorized."
"ISIL and its murderous ideology pose a serious threat to all of us. It cannot be tolerated. It must be destroyed."
He said that he and President Hollande agreed that both nations "must do even more together" against ISIS.
Obama said the U.S. will continue to coordinate with France on carrying out more airstrikes against ISIS in Syria.
On the question of accepting Syrian refugees, Obama emphasized that “refugees coming to America go through up to two years of intense security checks."
"Nobody who sets foot in America goes through more screening than refugees," he said, adding that France still plans to welcome 30,000 more Syrian refugees over the next two years.
Obama ended by saluting the people of Paris for showing the world how to stay strong in the face of terror.
