President Barack Obama is expected to take questions from reporters in a press conference today. It is the 100th day of Obama’s second term as U.S. president.

The issues that reporters may touch on are both domestic and international. At home, the issues range from 2013 sequester cuts and budget to comprehensive immigration reform and gun control. A bill to expand background checks to gun shows and online sales recently failed in the Senate. Internationally, the America’s policy to Syria remains in focus as there is still concern over whether the U.S. will directly get involved with protecting Syrian rebels. This comes after reports that chemical weapons have been used in the conflict.

    U.S. President Barack Obama expressed disappointment when lawmakers voted down a compromise bill to expand background checks. His second-term agenda has taken a back seat to an IRS scandal that is on the agenda for numerous congressional committees.
