After a stop in his hometown Chicago to discuss issues concerning his State of the Union address , President Barack Obama is to spend a few days on Florida's Atlantic Coast relaxing with friends.

"The president of the United States is the president of the United States 24 hours a day, and will fulfill his responsibilities as president even while he's getting some well-deserved downtime with some friends this weekend," White House spokesman Earnest told reporters travelling with Obama. "I don't think the American people will begrudge him that."
