Tuesday on NBC’s “Today,” in the lead up to his final state of the union address, President Barack Obama said the United States remains “the strongest nation on earth” and declared “there are no existential threats facing us.”

When asked about Americans’ fear, Obama said, “We went through a lot over these last ten years. We went through Katrina. We went through the Iraq war. We went through the worst financial crisis in our lifetimes. We are still battling terrorism. People are still recovering from some of the economic blows that hit, and it is sometimes important for people to step back and measure how far we’ve come. The economy right now is better than any other economy in the world by a significant margin. We remain the strongest nation on earth by far and there are no existential threats facing us. If we make some good choices now, whoever the next president is, whoever is controlling the next Congress there, there’s no reason why we shouldn’t own the 21st century.”
