EL PASO — President Obama will be at Fort Bliss Friday.
El Paso Mayor John Cook confirmed he received the call from General Pittard Monday, but details on the exact time and topic of the visit have not been made public.
Obama's last public appearance in El Paso was back in May 10, 2011. His speech then was focused around immigration issues.
Earlier this year, in March he was also in Maljamar, where he spoke about energy issues surrounded by oil field workers.
