President Obama will on Sunday deliver an Oval Office address to the country about what the federal government is doing to keep Americans safe, following the deadly San Bernardino, Calif., terror attack, according the White House.
Press Secretary Josh Earnest said in a statement that protecting Americans is Obama’s “highest priority.”
The president is also expected to give an update on the attack Wednesday in which husband-and-wife team Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik fatally shot 14 people and wounded dozens more inside a business complex.
Both appeared to have been in contact with radical Islamic groups, including the Islamic State.
Obama will also discuss the broader threat of terrorism, including how it has evolved and how the United States will defeat it, according to the White House.
Obama is leading a U.S.-led bombing coalition in the effort to destroy ISIS in Syria and Iraq. And he is expected to reiterate his vow that the terror group will be destroyed.
His effort thus far has essentially been the bombing campaign and sending several dozen U.S. Special Forces members into Syria thus far.
