Obama coming to Chicago to ‘talk about the gun violence’

President Barack Obama will visit Chicago this week, following his wife here as the city finds itself in the national spotlight after the slaying of 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton.

The White House said the visit Friday will be among three trips Obama will make to press issues raised in his State of the Union speech on Tuesday.

“The president will travel to Chicago for an event amplifying some of the policy proposals included in the State of the Union that focus on strengthening the economy for the middle class and the Americans striving to get there,” a White House official said.

“He’ll of course also talk about the gun violence that has tragically affected too many families in communities across Chicago and across the country,” the official added.
