Are you headed to the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit? Cool. So is President Obama. The with a White House spokesperson that the President would attend the Auto show on January 20 when it's open to the public.
This marks the first time President Obama will attend the Detroit auto show during his Presidency. The Free Press reports that the President will praise the U.S. auto industry turnaround in his final State of the Union address, which will be given on January 19. The Obama administration played a key role in propping up GM and Chrysler during the financial crisis, so their recent success will likely be touted as a victory.
The White House hasn't confirmed any specifics about the President's visit to Detroit, but he is expected to tour the city in addition to attending the auto show.
It's been a car heavy month for the President, who recently appeared in Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee web series, driving a 1963 split-window Corvette Sting Ray.
