President Obama asked about 'Tampon Tax' by Youtuber Ingrid Nilsen
If you haven't heard already, many states have something called the "tampon tax," where tampons and other menstrual products are dubbed "luxury items" thus allowing these items to be taxed.

In fact 11 states have already done so! Watch President Obama weigh in on the 'tampon tax' with Youtuber Ingrid Nilsen and read the full article here: http://time.com/4183108/obama-tampon-tax-sanitary/
