The trip to the BVI follows what the Daily Mail reported was a stay at the home of Spanish ambassador James Costos and his interior designer partner Michael Smith, after taking part in President Donald Trump’s inauguration last Friday.
Obama had indicated, via social media, that he and his wife were planning to take a break before returning to get work started on the Obama Foundation.
Hi everybody! Back to the original handle. Is this thing still on? Michelle and I are off on a quick vacation, then we’ll get back to work.
