Obama, speaking at the National Press Club on Thursday, said he wasn’t surprised by what he said about VR and that he doesn’t believe it’s a serious threat to American jobs.
“There are some folks out there who are saying that VR is a threat to the American economy,” he said.
“But I’m not going to take a stance on that.
That’s a discussion for the next president.”
Obama added that he thinks that if he’s elected, he’d take a look at VR as well.
“I think we should have a conversation about whether or not there are things that could benefit the economy,” Obama said.
“If we’re going to be competitive, we’re all going to have to work together to make sure that those opportunities are available.”
Obama also suggested that we should be “willing to be more open” in discussing these issues.
“We’re a society that is very welcoming and very welcoming of other cultures,” he added.
“We’re going through this transition.
We have to be willing to be a little bit more open and not be afraid to say that we’re not going along with everything that everybody is trying to do.”
