The president was in Argentina to meet with the country's new president, Mauricio Macri. Obama's trip to the South American nation came despite the deadly terror attacks that killed 34 in Brussels Tuesday.
Obama argued that shifting his plans would show weakness to the terrorists, and he sought to show he was unfazed by the campaign-season blitz of criticism at home. He vowed to stick to the strategy in Iraq and Syria.
"I've got a lot of things on my plate, but my top priority is to defeat ISIL and to eliminate the scourge of this barbaric terrorism that's been taking place around the world," Obama said. "There's no more important item on my agenda than going after them and defeating them. The issue is how do we do it in an intelligent way?"
