Word was out earlier this week that the Obamas have a big African trip planned later this month. But first – it’s off to Ireland and Germany.
President Obama will be in Northern Ireland for the G8 Summit where he’ll speak on their peace process in Belfast. But Michelle and the girls will be off to Dublin for a tour of an exhibition at Dublin’s Trinity College, devoted to the president’s Irish ancestry, according to deputy national security advisor Ben Rhodes. Also on the agenda is a little quality time with Fionnuala Kenny, wife of Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny, and Sabina Higgins, the wife of the Irish President Michael Higgins.
“They were invited to visit the last time that the president was in Ireland, and this will be an opportunity for the first lady and the girls to accept that hospitality,” Rhodes said at a briefing on Friday, according to The Hill.
Next, they’ll be off to Germany, where The Hill reports:
The first lady, Sasha and Malia will also be in Berlin for the president’s visit there. The first lady will visit the memorial to the murdered Jews of Europe in Mauerpark on June 19, where she will tour the wall park with Chancellor Angela Merkel’s husband, Joachim Sauer. She also will visit the Reichstag before joining President Obama for the official dinner hosted by the chancellor.
