WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama will hold the last news conference of his first term at the White House Monday morning.
Officials say Obama will take questions in the White House East Room at 11:15 a.m. EST. The event comes one week before the president's ceremonial swearing-in and inaugural address for a second term.
Among the issues the president is expected to address Monday are looming fiscal fights with Congress, particularly over raising the nation's debt limit, and his administration's efforts to curb gun violence. The president is expected to receive a report on Tuesday from Vice President Joe Biden, who has been leading a task force on ways to reduce violence.
