President Obama will hold a press conference in the Brady Press Briefing Room on Tuesday morning, the White House announced.

Obama will take questions from reporters, White House press secretary Jay Carney tweeted.


The press conference comes on the 100th day of Obama's second term.

He is likely to face questions on a wide range of issues, including his push for gun control, fiscal battles with Congress and immigration reform. Foreign policy issues are also likely to be discussed, as the administration investigates the possible use of chemical weapons in Syria.

The president in his first term received criticism from the press for infrequently holding appearances in the briefing room.
