Malia Helped POTUS And Acted As A Translator During Trip To Cuba
As Barack Obama and the family take in their historic visit to Cuba, POTUS received some help from his oldest daughter Malia Monday (March 21) who doubled as a translator.
White House Photographer Pete Souza captured the laugh shared between the president and his daughter, along with a chef at a restaurant in Old Havana and posted to Instagram. Although Obama has been greeted with open arms by the people of Cuba, his Spanish is a bit rusty, which is where his 17-year-old daughter came in handy.
As the president and Malia chum it up with the locals, First Lady Michelle Obama will handle meetings of her own, one of which is speaking with high school girls as part of her let girls learn initiative.
Flotus and her daughters also visited La Catedral de la Virgen Maria de la Concepcion Inmaculada, as the president met with Raul Castro. The First Family landed in Cuba on Sunday, and will board Air Force One on Thursday to head to Argentina where they’ll meet with the country’s new president Mauricio Macri.
Yeah, that’s cool, but back to how awesome Malia is.
