US President Barack Obama , while attending a charity session of former President Bill Clinton, offered his motorcade to help Clinton’s daughter Chelsea to travel to New York for her delivery.
President Obama made the offer on Tuesday in New York while addressing the Clinton Global Initiative event. “I was just discussing with President Clinton that if Chelsea begins delivery while I’m speaking, she has my motorcade and will be able to navigate traffic,” he said with a smirk. “I don’t know what the problem is. Everybody hypes the traffic, but I haven’t noticed,” he said referring to New York’s traffic snarls.
Prior to it, the president visited the U.N. General Assembly to attend the climate summit but the meeting created several street closures creating traffic jam in many streets of the New York City on Tuesday.
President Clinton told CNN on Sunday that he did not know the gender of the baby. “My daughter and son-in-law decided not to know. They want to be surprised. So we’re all just sitting around waiting.” He said he would be grandfather by October 1.
