Obama to give Sunday night Oval Office address in wake of California shootings
President Barack Obama will deliver a prime-time address to the nation that networks will broadcast live Sunday at 8 p.m. ET. The announcement comes after the mass shootings in San Bernardino on Dec. 2 that left 14 people dead and more than a dozen wounded.
The White House announced that President Obama will discuss the issue of terrorism in the U.S. and provide an update on the San Bernardino shootings. The White House website stated, "He will reiterate his firm conviction that ISIL will be destroyed and that the United States must draw upon our values -- our unwavering commitment to justice, equality, and freedom -- to prevail over terrorist groups that use violence to advance a destructive ideology."
