    Obama is in Argentina to discuss Argentina's reform agenda. The White House hopes the trip will increase cooperation in trade and investment for Americans.
    "I think Argentina is a good example of the shift that's taken place in terms of U.S. relations with other governments and other countries generally," Obama told CNN in an interview ahead of his trip. "President Macri recognizes that we're in a new era, and we have to look forward."
