A "Personal Visit" To New York City


A late addition to the White House schedule: it seems that the President and the First Lady will make a "personal trip" to New York City tomorrow. No more details or guidance from the White House have been forthcoming. So-called "off-the-record" trips inside the Beltway are common, but the President doesn't usually make a "personal" trip on such short notice. Perhaps he is attending to a sick friend....someone's funeral....maybe he's attending a Broadway show?
