Ben Rhodes on the Ride Home

As Air Force One flies back to Washington, Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes provides a wrap-up of the President's trip to Asia.

We sat Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes down on the front couch of Air Force One to get a wrap-up of the trip before landing in Washington, DC.  He may seem a little sleepy and dehydrated, but I can personally attest that he got a decent amount of rest on the way back. He was firmly in the “stay up at first, sleep later” camp for combating jet lag. Maybe we can have him attest to the success or failure of that endeavor tomorrow.

It’s been an honor and a privilege to bring you these video updates on our travels through Asia, and we hope it’s given you a new perspective on what it’s like to travel with President.

You can find more information on the President's trip and on the President's policies in Asia on our Asia page.
