President Barack Obama is visiting the Caribbean nation of Jamaica. Since his arrival this past Wednesday, the President of the United States has been taken on a unique journey, of the beautiful island nation.
President Barack Obama made a brief, unannounced trip to the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston, Jamaica, shortly after touching down on Wednesday.
“I still have all the albums,” Obama said while looking at a wall of records inside the house, according to a White House pool report.
In a unique introduction, POTUS greeted the Jamaican public.
During the 2012 campaign, Obama told MTV that he is a big fan of the late reggae artist and cultural stoner icon.
“I remember in college listening, and not agreeing with his whole philosophy necessarily, but raising my awareness how people outside of our country were thinking about the struggle for jobs and dignity and freedom,” he said at the time.
The nighttime museum visit was “one of the more fun meetings” he has had since becoming president, Obama said Thursday.
The president is traveling to Jamaica and Panama this week, meeting with regional allies to discuss energy and security issues, as well as the U.S. relationship with Cuba.
It is the first presidential trip to Jamaica since 1982, when President Ronald Reagan and first lady Nancy Reagan visited the island.
