Obama to Return to Riverside County for Another Summit in February

President Barack Obama arrives at Palm Springs International Airport on June 7, 2013 for a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping at Sunnylands.
President Barack Obama arrives at Palm Springs International Airport on June 7, 2013 for a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping at Sunnylands.

President Barack Obama will hold a Feb. 14 summit with King Abdullah II of Jordan at the Sunnylands Estate in Rancho Mirage, the White House announced Wednesday.

The two leaders will discuss "opportunities to strengthen the U.S.- Jordan strategic partnership and how to advance our political, economic and security cooperation." They will also discuss Middle East peace and neighboring Syria, according to a White House statement.

Abdullah met with members of Congress in the Jordanian capital of Amman last week to discuss issues in the Middle East, and met with Obama in Jordan last March. The two countries are "close friends and historic partners that have worked together to promote peace, prosperity and reform," according to the White House statement.

It will be Obama's second summit at Sunnylands. Last June, he met with Chinese President Xi Jinping for two days at the former Annenberg estate, where they spoke about such topics as cyber security and greenhouse gas emissions.

Sunnylands will be closed to the public Feb. 10-17.

"We are profoundly honored that President Obama has chosen Sunnylands as the venue for this important meeting," said Geoffrey Cowan, president of the Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands.

"Walter and Leonore Annenberg were outstanding philanthropists and diplomats who hoped that their estate would become the 'Camp David of the West' where the president could meet with world leaders to promote global peace and facilitate international agreements," he said. "The upcoming meeting between President Obama and His Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan ... continues to fulfill that vision, which is carried on by their children and grandchildren who serve as our trustees."

The estate, built in the mid-1960s by the Annenbergs, has hosted presidents, foreign heads of state, Supreme Court justices and celebrities. Sunnylands opened to the public in 2012.

Jeffe, your garage is filled with "stuff" that you've had to move from one foreclosure to your eviction and then on to your next eviction. You'd be smart to keep it in boxes. You never know when you'll have to pack up again...I think YOU should have a garage sale. You could advertise it here on the Patch. Quick, before it shuts down...

Steve Newman February 01, 2014 at 02:51 PM
No but Cindys pay can be garnished- you are married you know-community property state. Both can be named in the suit- these posts are coming from the house where you both live- so it could her dong these posts or not. And what does having been a cop have to do with suing you? Actually it will make it easier- I have been in court too- but on the right side of the law.
Jeff Kleiner February 01, 2014 at 02:58 PM
No...IDIOT......it can't be garnished.....AND YOU SAY YOU WERE A POLICEMAN??? ROFLAMO...No wonder you were fired.
Jeff Kleiner February 01, 2014 at 02:59 PM
Newman, everyone on the blog KNOWS your a lying scumbag.....you should take a hike and take your bloated cow with you.
Steve Newman February 01, 2014 at 03:01 PM
Jeff likes Dominos- they are the only thing that delivers in his house.
Steve Newman February 01, 2014 at 04:02 PM
Oh names to hurt- you are a foolish little boy- and Cindy's wages can be garnished if the court decides. How is that therapy for obsessive compulsion working for you?
