WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama says there’s currently no specific, credible intelligence that would indicate a potential terrorist plot in the U.S. during the holidays.

Obama says his administration is taking “every possible step” to keep the country safe. He says that if there were to be a credible threat, the public will be informed.
