Obama: To Beat ISIS, U.S. Must ‘Invest’ in ‘Education and Skills and Job Training’

‘We will keep promoting development and growth that is broadly shared so more people can provide for their families’

BARACK OBAMA: "If we're going to prevent people from being susceptible to the false promises of extremism, than the international community has to offer something better. The United States intends to do its part. We will keep promoting development and growth that is broadly shared so more people can provide for their families. We'll keep leading a global effort against corruption because the culture of the bribe had to be replaced by good governance that doesn't favor certain groups over others. Countries have to truly invest in the education and skills and job training that our extraordinary young people need. By the way, that's boys and girls and men and women because countries will not be truly successful if half their populations are denied opportunity."
