President Obama announced that he wanted to have a serious conversation with the virus that is wreaking havoc on Western Africa and shows signs of spreading to other parts of the world.
In a press conference, he stated that he was never told that such a virus could be dangerous, but now that he knows he's ready to "look at all the options on the table, mull over the possibilities, and have a conversation about doing something to make the safety of the United States priority number one."
He added "If that means we have a summit and lay our cards on the table, then I'm ready to discuss that."
The President mentions the possibility of arming more moderate viruses to combat the Ebola strain, but added that "nothing is off the table. "
Vice President Joe Siden added that he thought the virus was "not good" and wasn't happy about it.
The President plans a trip to various nations during the next six months to gain support for meeting with the virus to see if a deal can be worked out.
