President Obama will return to the White House for two days midway through his Martha’s Vineyard vacation to attend unspecified meetings at the White House.
The White House has given no reason for the sudden decision to return Obama to Washington. I can tell you, interrupting his vacation is not something Obama would do lightly. He must feel the need to deal with something important. I would be concerned.
Obama, who leaves for Martha’s Vineyard Saturday, will return to the White House on Sunday, Aug. 17, before resuming his vacation on Aug. 19. His vacation is still scheduled to end the following Sunday, August 24.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest today refused to say why Obama was returning. “Check back next week,” he said.
