Obama Cancels Thursday Travel to Monitor Ebola

Wednesday, 15 Oct 2014 09:28 PM

President Barack Obama has canceled a scheduled trip to Rhode Island and New York Thursday to remain at the White House and monitor the government's Ebola response.

The change in plans marks the second day in a row that Obama put off travel to attend to heightened concerns about Ebola in West Africa and the emergence of two cases in the United States.

Obama postponed fundraising and political campaign stops Wednesday that had been scheduled in New Jersey and Connecticut. Obama instead called a meeting of his Cabinet secretaries and top White House officials involved in the response to the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia and its repercussions in the U.S.
