The White House on Monday defended President Barack Obama’s schedule this week --including a three-day trip to the west coast -- amid escalating international and domestic crises.
“When the president travels, he travels with an array of staff and advisers and communications equipment that allows him to do his job from wherever he happens to be,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said. “And that will be the case this week, when he's traveling later his week.”
