Former President Barack Obama is scheduled to make a return to the White House this week to celebrate healthcare reform. The trip on Tuesday (April 5) will mark the 44th Commander-in-Chief's first time back at the White House since leaving office in 2017.
Obama is returning to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave in a joint event with President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris to reflect on his 2010 Affordable Care Act, and the strides made in the nation's healthcare system. Obama is et to "deliver remarks celebrating the success of the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid," a statement by a White House official confirmed.
Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra is also slated to attend the event, along with varying members of the Cabinet and former officials who served during Obama's administration.
This will be the first time Obama, Biden, and Harris have all made a public appearance together since the 20th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks.
According to reports, Obama is likely to return to the White House again sometime soon for the unveiling of his and former First Lady Michelle Obama's presidential portraits.
