In private Miami Beach gathering, President Obama looks to life after White House
For one night in Miami Beach, President Barack Obama wasn't campaigning for Hillary Clinton or raising money for the Democratic Party. He was an outgoing president thanking friends and planning for life outside the White House.
Obama assembled some 35 people Wednesday evening at the Star Island home of former U.S. Amb. Paul Cejas, two sources told the Miami Herald. According to the White House, the president was "seeing some friends and supporters to continue his conversations regarding future plans for his Foundation."
Air Force One landed at Miami International Airport shortly before 7:30 p.m. A tieless Obama was met by Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez and Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine. Levine hopped on the presidential motorcade and attended the private gathering hosted by Cejas. Another attendee: music producer Emilio Estefan, one of Cejas' Star Island neighbors.
Obama will campaign for Clinton Thursday at Florida International University and in Jacksonville.
