A day after saying he was not interested in photo ops, President Barack Obama bragged that he took a selfie with high school kids at a cafe on Thursday in exchange for a group picture of them once they got to Peru for a service trip.
Obama said he was “really tempted,” then added, “But I think there’s some things I gotta do.”
“In exchange for a selfie with them, they promised that they would send me a picture of them when they get there,” Obama stated. “I’m going to hold them to it.” Obama said he got their email addresses, and he would be “upset” if he did not receive a group photo.
The President attended three fundraisers in Texas on Wednesday and Thursday but refused to go to the border to see the crisis firsthand.
“I’m not interested in photo ops,” he said on Wednesday. “I’m interested in solving a problem.”
