President Obama has planned a weekend getaway in New York City beginning with a secret Democratic National Committee fundraiser on Friday night.
“That is not particularly unusual,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest admitted to reporters this afternoon. The exclusive roundtable fundraiser will be closed to the press, and will be hosted by George Logothetis, the Chairman and CEO of the Libra Group, and his wife Nitzia Logothetis.
Afterwards, Obama will spend the weekend in New York with his daughters for a little “personal time.”
“The president is looking forward to a rare opportunity that he’ll have to spend a little personal time with his daughters in New York over the weekend,” Earnest said.
