"At a Thursday news conference, president Barack Obama said demonstrators picketing against Wall Street are expressing the frustrations of the American public.

"People are frustrated and the protesters are giving voice to a more broad-based frustration about how our financial system works," he said.

Obama added that he understands the public's concerns regarding the structure of the nation's financial system. Occupy Wall Street has been ongoing since Sept. 17 in New York, and has spread to other cities across the country.

"The American people understand that not everybody's been following the rules," he said."
