Guam - An invitation has been extended to President Barack Obama to stop by Guam after his visits to Australia and Bali. Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo's office confirms the White House is giving serious consideration to the invitation.
The president is in Australia where he recently announced that the United States will begin rotating Marines through a base in Darwin in a permanent military presence, as there are growing concerns about China. After visiting Australian troops in Darwin, the president is scheduled to travel to Bali for the East Asian Summit.
The congresswoman's press secretary, Adam Carbullido, says they recognize there are scheduling and logistical issues the white house must first consider before accepting her invitation.
