President Obama said Tuesday that the economic crisis in Europe could “have some impact” on his reelection chances in November.
“I think it’s fair to say that all these issues, economic issues, will potentially have some impact on the election,” Obama told reporters at a press conference in Los Cabos, Mexico wrapping up the G20 summit. “But that’s not my biggest concern right now.”
Weighing in for the first time on how Europe’s financial woes might affect his chances of reelection, Obama said his “biggest concern” – a concern he said he’s had for more than three years– is how to put those who are unemployed or underemployed and unable to pay the bills in a “stronger position.”
During the press conference, Obama once again called on Congress to act on a jobs plan that would “put us on the path to creating an extra million jobs”
