The president talks about the state of the union at a press conference in the White House Thursday afternoon.
"To be honest, I inherited a mess. It’s a mess," he added. "At home, and abroad, a mess. Jobs are pouring out of the country — you see what’s going on with all of the companies leaving our country, going to Mexico and other places — low pay, low wages, mass instability over seas, no matter where you look, the Middle East, a disaster. North Korea."
"We’ll take care of it, folks, We are going to take care of it all. i just wanted to let you know, I inherited a mess."
