Obama Calls On Europe To Stabilize Financial System

President Barack Obama highlighted the economic struggles in Europe during a news conference Friday morning at the White House, while calling on the continent’s leaders to help stabilize the Eurozone.

“Obviously this matters to us because europe is our largest economic trading partner, if there’s less demand for our products in places like Paris or Madrid, it could mean less businesses or less business for manufacturers in places like Pittsburgh,” Obama said.
