US President Barack Obama is being sworn in for his second term of office, in a private swearing-in ceremony in the Blue Room of the White House. The US Chief Justice and a small group of family members are attending the event, including first lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha. A small group of reporters have also been allowed into the room. But the president will save his most expansive remarks for Monday, when he’ll deliver his second inaugural address to crowds gathered on the National Mall and millions more watching across the world. The speech will set the stage for Obama’s policy objectives, including speeding up the economic recovery, passing comprehensive immigration and gun control measures, and ending the war in Afghanistan. The president launched a weekend of inaugural activities on Saturday by heading up a National Day of Service. Obama added the service event to the inaugural schedule in 2009. He hopes it will remain a tradition for the inauguration of future presidents. 声明:音视频均来自互联网链接,仅供学习使用。本网站自身不存储、控制、修改被链接的内容。"爱思英语"高度重视知识产权保护。当如发现本网站发布的信息包含有侵犯其著作权的链接内容时,请联系我们,我们将依法采取措施移除相关内容或屏蔽相关链接。
