The president has been out of the White House since Friday, when he abruptly walked out of a joint press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
He tweeted Saturday morning that he will be returning to the White Senate, where he’ll be able to work with the Senate Republicans to pass legislation to overhaul the Affordable Care Act.
