Obama to address nation Tuesday on Syria
President Obama announced that he will make his case on military strikes on Syria during a speech to the American public on Tuesday from the White House.
“I’ll make the best case I can to the American people, as well as the international community,” Obama said in St. Petersburg, where he is attending the G-20 economic summit.
Obama has spoken to a small group of reporters in the Rose Garden and during a photo-op in the White House last week, but he has not delivered a lengthy address directly to the public.
“There is a growing recognition that the world cannot stand idly by,” Obama said.
