WASHINGTON (AP) (5/20/2019) - President Donald Trump is preparing for a jet-setting summer of travel as he heads into 2020.
His itinerary will see Air Force One fly more than 36,000 miles -- almost 1.5 times the earth's circumference.
The flurry of international travel is a marked change of pace for a president who rarely strays outside the White House, unless it's to his own properties. Trump typically prefers sleeping in his own bed.
It's part of a concerted attempt by Trump to wrap himself in the trappings of the presidency before the next election. It's also partly due to a fluke of the global summit calendar.
