President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will travel to Palm Springs June 13, and return to Palm Springs after Obama speaks at UC Irvine's commencement ceremony the following day, the White House announced Friday.

It will the president's third trip to the Coachella Valley in the past year.

The Obamas will visit an Indian reservation in North Dakota on Friday, then travel to Palm Springs. On Saturday, the president will speak at the commencement ceremony of the University of California, Irvine, at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, then return to Palm Springs. The Obamas will go back to Washington, D.C., the following Monday, according to the White House.

Obama is also scheduled to attend a fundraiser in Laguna Beach on Saturday. The White House's statement didn't say where the Obamas were staying in the Palm Springs area.

Last June, Obama met with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Sunnylands estate in Rancho Mirage. In February, he had a summit at Sunnylands with King Abdullah II of Jordan.

Sunnylands spokeswoman Mary Perry said earlier Friday that the estate had no confirmation Obama was planning to return to the Coachella Valley.

Maybe during his golf dates he can decide how many troops to send back to Iraq, since that decision, like most of his, was wrong. You listen to the people on the ground, not the pollsters.

The asshat is well at home… He is honoring (if you call it honoring) a school that band luaus because it is culturally insensitive … I will have a hard time sitting in my season seat(s) knowing an asshat supporter sat there.
