All the Places I've Been - President Obama
America's foreign policy is likely to change significantly over the next four years. Luckily the President-elect has the best advice. When recently asked about who he listens to on foreign policy Donald Trump said,
"I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things."
Just imagine the mess that the United States could be facing if Donald Trump hadn't said a lot of things. Imagine the situation we could be facing if he didn't have such a very good brain. Or, shudder at the thought, imagine what might happen if Trump actually stopped jabbering to himself.
But we're getting ahead of ourselves. At least for a few more days President Obama is in charge. During his presidency Barack Obama has taken 151 trips around the world on Air Force One and has clocked-up around 570,000 air miles. You can view all the countries that Barack Obama has visited during his presidency on a new interactive map.
Obama International Travel shows all the flights around the world that Barack Obama took from 2009-2016, The map includes an animated timeline which means that you can see when the president visited each country. You can also click on the destination markers on the map to learn a little more about the purpose of each visit.
President Obama only appears to have made one visit to Russia over the last eight years. No wonder he isn't such good friends with Vladimir Putin as Donald Trump.
