President Obama Addresses Country After Ferguson Grand Jury Decision

President Obama makes a statement after the grand jury made a decision on whether to charge Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for the death of Michael Brown.

“Either way it was going to be the subject of intense disagreement,” the 53-year-old president shared during his speech to the country. “We need to accept that this decision was the grand jury’s to make.” Watch the video below!

He added, “There are Americans who agree with it, and there are Americans who are deeply disappointed — even angry. It’s an understandable reaction.”

He continued, “We have made enormous progress in race relations over the course of the past several decades. I have witnessed that in my own life, and to deny that progress, I think is to deny America’s capacity for change. But what is also true is that there are still problems — and communities of color aren’t just making these problems up. Separating that from this particular decision, there are issues in which the law too often feels as if it is being applied in a discriminatory fashion.”

In case you missed the big news, Darren was not charged for killing Michael in August.

President Obama Meets Nina Pham, Nurse Who Survived Ebola

President Barack Obama gives a hug to Dallas nurse Nina Pham while meeting with her in the Oval Office of the White House on Friday (October 24) in Washington, D.C.

“Although I no longer have Ebola, I know that it may be awhile before I have my strength back,” Nina said (via CNN). “So with gratitude and respect for everyone’s concern, I ask for my privacy and for my family’s privacy to be respected as I return to Texas and try to get back to a normal life and reunite with my dog, Bentley.”

Nina‘s dog Bentley was placed in quarantine and will remain there until the end of the month, though she will get to visit, hold, and play with him this weekend.
