Ad Feedback

President Obama is wrapping up his first overseas trip Tuesday.

He wrapped up a two-day visit to Turkey with a town hall-style meeting and a meeting with cultural and religious leaders.

On Monday, in an address to Turkey's parliament, the President pressed ahead with his campaign to improve relations with the Muslim world.

He says the U.S. in not a Christian, Muslim, or Jewish nation. But instead, a nation of citizens bound by common values.

Obama has also met with religious leaders in Turkey, and Tuesday morning held a town hall-style roundtable with Turkish university students.

"I know there have been difficulties these last few years. So let me say this as clearly as I can: the United States is not and will never be at war with Islam," Obama said.
