BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — President Barack Obama is giving Argentina’s famed tango dancers a run for their money.
Obama was taking in a tango performance during a state dinner in his honor when a female dancer in a shimmering gold dress beckoned him to the floor. At first, Obama declined — multiple times.
Eventually, Obama relented, joining the dancer for a few turns on the dance floor.
First lady Michelle Obama got in on the action, too, pairing up with a male tango dancer.
Argentine President Mauricio Macri says his country recognizes Obamas visit as a gesture of friendship. He says Argentina developed with the same values as the U.S.
