President Barack Obama will travel to Copenhagen Thursday to lobby the International Olympic Committee on behalf of Chicago's bid for the 2016 Olympic Games, Valerie Jarrett, a White House advisor, said Monday.
Mr. Obama will make a joint presentation with First Lady Michelle Obama Friday morning in Copenhagen, said Ms. Jarrett, who heads a White House team devoted to promoting the bid. The couple will then participate in a formal question and answer session with the IOC, which will announce the winning host city the same day.
