The president’s objective was to bring calm to the nation after the attack that left 14 dead last week in California. Obama said that his government will do its best to win against the terrorist threats from the Islamic State and other terrorist groups.

Obama tried to calm the state of paranoia that many may have against ISIS considering the Paris attacks that occurred last month. He said that the war against the Islamic State doesn’t “depend on tough talk or abandoning our values or giving in to fear. Instead, we will prevail by being strong and smart, resilient and relentless.” He also urged people not to have prejudices against the Muslim community, because that will only help to grow the propaganda used by ISIS.
