President Obama Visits Europe, Meets With Leaders
Calling for unity in what is historically referred to as an international farewell tour, President Obama visited with leaders from Britain, Germany, France and Italy this week.
He started with a trip to see Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II, as she celebrated her 90th birthday. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge treated the president and the first lady to dinner at Kensington Palace. And as you see, young Prince George was allowed to stay up past his bedtime for the event. Dressed in his tiny bathrobe and playing on his rocking horse, the young royal spent about 15 minutes visiting with the grown-ups.
After hosting a town hall urging young people to keep up the good fight for change in the world, the president got to business with European leaders, with a big focus on the refugee crisis.
