Pres. Obama: Pittsburgh Perfect Venue for G20

President Barack Obama wrapped up the two-day G20 Summit in Pittsburgh with a news conference in which he thanked the leaders and citizens of Pittsburgh, which he called the "perfect venue for this work.....during the dinner that I had with world leaders (at Phipps Conservatory) so many of them commented on the fact that some time in the past they had been to Pittsburgh, in some cases 20 or 25 or 30 years ago, and coming back they were so impressed with the revitalization of the city."

The president said the summit was relatively tranquil and protesters should realize that world leaders are trying to shape a global economy that helps poor people.

Listen to the President's news conference.
