From there, the prez travels to the home of TracFone Wireless Inc. CEO F.J. Pollak and his wife Abigail. Obama is expected to arrive at 5:45.

At 8:30, the POTUS then heads to the Fillmore Miami Beach for the Marc Anthony concert.

Obama is expected to depart from Miami International Airport at 9:45 tonight.
