US President Talks Afghanistan, Economy in State of the Union
VOAVideo: US President Talks Afghanistan, Economy in State of the Union
With more than one third of Americans telling pollsters they want the president to focus on the economy, President Barack Obama did just that in his State of the Union Address in Washington Tuesday night. In setting his agenda for the coming year, the president also called for reforms of America's gun laws and declared America's involvement in the conflict in Afghanistan nearly ended. VOA's Carolyn Presutti reports on the speech and reaction from the opposition party.
