President Obama will visit the Glendale campus of DreamWorks Animation SKG next week during a trip to Los Angeles, according to a report by The Los Angeles Times.
Obama will tour the site and make a speech to the company's employees, the White House confirmed on Thursday.
“On Tuesday, November 26, the president will visit DreamWorks Animation facility in Glendale, California, to deliver remarks on the economy,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest reportedly said. “The American motion picture and television industry is a growing industry and continues to create thousands of jobs all across the country.”
The President will be in town next week for a series of fundraisers at Magic Johnson’s house, the Beverly Hills mansion of Haim Saban and his wife Cheryl, and the home of Friends creator Marta Kauffman. He was already set to be in Los Angeles on November 25 and 26 to make up for a September fundraising event that was cancelled because of the government shutdown and possible military action in Syria.
