On Sunday, five days after the 2014 midterm elections, President Obama will leave the United States for a trip to Asia.
According to the White House Press Office, following the midterm elections, which will likely result in Republicans taking the Senate, President Obama will leave the country for a full week. He will visit China and Burma, then head to Australia.
While in China, Obama will attend the APEC Leaders Meeting and the APEC CEO Summit before visiting with President Xi Jinping.
In Australia, the President will participate in the G20 Leaders Summit and plans to deliver a speech on “U.S. leadership in the Asia-Pacific.”
