Subject: Travel pool report #4: POTUS and Macri to answer question from Facebook at the end of press conference
On background, from a White House official:
Today at the conclusion of their joint press conference, President Obama and President Macri will answer a question submitted through Facebook after they take questions from journalists. The Argentine Presidency announced this online engagement earlier this week on its official Facebook page. The decision to include a question from social media reflects an effort to reach millions of people through the media platforms they increasingly rely on to consume their news. This will be the first time President Obama answers a question from social media during a joint press conference.
