Bordallo Aide Says President Obama Will Make Re-Fueling Stop on Guam


Guam – Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo’s Press Aide Adam Carbullido acknowledged to PNC News that President Obama will make a brief re-fueling stop on Guam. But, Carbullido declined to comment further on Obama’s schedule while he is here.

However later, Carbuilldo disputed this report saying: “I maintain that is an inaccurate account” of our conversation.

Carbullido emphasized that any official confirmation of the President’s stop over on Guam must come from the White House.

Bordallo arrived back on Guam Thursday night. It is not clear whether she will greet the President Saturday night. Governor’s Spokesman Troy Torres says Adelup is still in the dark about the visit and has not received any official invitation to greet the President. The White House has not confirmed the President’s stop over either.

As PNC News reported Wednesday, a variety of sources have confirmed that the President will arrive at Andersen Air Force Base shortly after 11 pm Saturday night and depart 2 hours later.

It is scheduled to be a re-fueling stop only. Obama is slated to visit briefly with some troops “in the hanger,” but he is not scheduled to leave the base.

President Obama departed Australia last night [Thursday] and he is now in Bali, Indonesia. 

He departs Bali Saturday en route to Guam for the re-fueling stop before heading back to Washington D.C.
