WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is opening his Christmas vacation on a somber note: meeting with families of the 14 people who were killed in the San Bernardino shooting.
Obama will stop in California en route to Hawaii Friday for his annual holiday getaway. The White House added the stop so Obama can meet privately with relatives of those who were killed Dec. 2 when a married couple opened fire on the husband’s co-workers at a holiday party.
The FBI is investigating the case as an act of terrorism.
The White House says Obama wanted to spend time with the families before beginning his holiday.
