Back to work.
President Obama will return to the White House Sunday night after a 16-day family vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., to finish out the last five months of his presidency in typically busy fashion.
On the agenda immediately is a Tuesday trip to Baton Rouge, La., to survey damage from flooding that killed at least 13 people and forced thousands into shelters.
In coming days and weeks he is also expected to press Congress hard for money to protect against the Zika virus and to go on a public relations blitz regarding attacks over the administration’s $400 million “leverage” payment to Iran.
In addition, he is slated to visit China and Laos Sept. 2-9 in what will likely be his last visit to the region as President.
Obama also is expected to campaign doggedly to help elect Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton as president.
Obama was due at the White House late Sunday after a leisurely getaway to Martha’s Vineyard with wife Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha.
