Some grammar books told us that 'be going to' is used as the decision made by the speaker at the time of speaking. Why did Obama use 'be going to' in his speech? Can we replace 'be going to' with 'will'?
“I do not underestimate the enormity of the task that lies ahead,” Mr. Obama said, his voice slow and controlled. “Some of the choices that we make are going to be difficult. And I have said before and I will repeat again: It is not going to be quick and it is not going to be easy for us to dig ourselves out of the hole that we are in.”
Tks. But you have not answered my question
