WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will speak Friday about the government's fuel efficiency goals for model years 2017-2025 cars and light-duty trucks. The president will appear at the Convention Center in downtown Washington.
Later, Obama will welcome the leaders of four West African countries to the White House. The White House says the meeting with the presidents of Benin (beh-NEEN'), Guinea, Niger (nee-ZHEHR') and Ivory Coast provides an opportunity to underscore U.S. support for emerging democracies and to highlight partnerships with them.
The White House says the leaders will discuss a range of regional issues.
