Barack Obama Union Address

On Politics

Obama asked his countrymen to reject any politics that targets people based on religion and race. Apparently taking a dig at Republican candidates.

On Economy 

Describing America as the strongest and most durable economy, Obama rejected the assessment that the world's largest economy is on decline.

On Terrorism 

Terrorist groups like al Qaeda and ISIL (also known as ISIS Islamic State militant group) use the Internet to poison the minds of individuals inside the country. They undermine American allies.

Barack Obama said that the United States of America is the most powerful nation on Earth. He used his final State of the Union address to point a hopeful portrait of America under his leadership.
