White House deputy press secretary Eric Schultz he didn't know if the president would visit family during the trip. Obama's father is from Kenya.

“I don’t have any updates to the president’s schedule since we just announced the trip. But as soon as we can flesh that out for you, we’ll have that for you," Schultz said.
