WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama is back in the U.S. after a trip that took him to Mexico and Costa Rica over three days.
Air Force One arrived at Maryland’s Andrews Air Force Base, outside of Washington, about 6:45 EDT Saturday night. The president returned to the White House just after 7 p.m.
Obama had left the U.S. last Thursday.
In Mexico, Obama cheered advances in that nation’s economy and voiced his support for an overhaul of U.S. immigration policies.
While visiting Costa Rica, the president urged leaders in Central American to integrate their economies, reduce their high energy costs and confront violence in the region.
