On Monday, President Obama shared his vision for the next four years with the nation in his second inaugural address. In the speech the president laid out an ambitious agenda for the next four years and there’s been a lot of talk about how much can actually be accomplished. He touched on a series of issues including climate change, immigration reform, economic inequality and gay rights- becoming the first president in modern history to talk about gay rights in an inaugural speech. Many of you had questions about the president’s speech and also about what we can expect in the second Obama term.
Renee Ferguson asked: After tackling gun violence, what will the president tackle next?
Zack East tweeted that he would like to know if the president would seek to change laws nationally regarding gay marriage and discrimination policies.
And Clark Johnson wondered: POTUS inaugural- how much is real and how much is fantasy?
Thanks for the great questions everyone and please keep them coming on Facebook and on Twitter. Be sure to tune into “Good Morning America” tomorrow morning and to “This Week” on Sunday, where we’ll talk more about that speech and about the start of President Obama’s second term.
