President Barack Obama, expressing confidence he will win re-election in November, told a Hispanic audience he would use a second term to seek comprehensive immigration reform.
'My presidency is not over,' Obama said in an interview with Univision Radio when asked about his failure so far to push through an immigration bill.
'I've got another five years coming up. We're going to get this done.'
• Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told an audience in Tunisia to ignore the rhetoric coming from the Republican presidential primary process and assured them that Obama's reelection was certain.
"...a lot of things are said in political campaigns that should not bear a lot of attention...
...There are comments made that certainly don't reflect the United States, don't reflect our foreign policy, don't reflect who we are as a people. I mean, if you go to the United States, you see mosques everywhere, you see Muslim-Americans everywhere. That's the fact. So I would not pay attention to the rhetoric...
...watch what President Obama says and does... He's our president. He represents all of the United States, and he will be reelected president, so I think that that will be a very clear signal to the entire world..."
