President Obama delivers the weekly address from Indonesia, one of three stops on his Asian tour. In his weekly address, Obama said his trip successfully propped up the U.S. economy. "The progress we’ve made in opening markets and boosting exports here will help create more jobs and more growth in the United States," he said.
The President promoted the recent trade deal with South Korea and other agreements with Asian countries, including Indonesia, as a way to create "tens of thousands" of American jobs. Obama said, "These agreements will help us reach my goal of doubling American exports by 2014 – a goal we’re on pace to meet. And they’re powerful examples of how we can rebuild an economy that’s focused on what our country has always done best – making and selling products all over the world that are stamped with three proud words: 'Made In America.'"
