President Obama makes another trip to New York City Tuesday for a star-studded campaign event hosted by Jay-Z and Beyonce and to tape a segment for "The Late Show with David Letterman." 

Obama visited the Ed Sullivan Theater in midtown Tuesday afternoon for the Letterman taping, his second since taking office. In a rebuke of Mitt Romney's controversial "47 percent" comment, Obama told Letterman Americans are not "victims" and that voters want to make sure their president is "not writing off big chunks of the country." 

"My expectation is that if you want to be president, you have to work for everyone, not just for some," Obama said in the taping.

Afterward, the president attended a fundraiser hosted by Beyonce and Jay-Z at the hip-hop mogul's 40/40 Club in Chelsea. 

Tickets to the exclusive event were $40,000.
