Embarking on his first overseas trip as the U.S. President, Barack Obama will arrive here on Tuesday for the G20 summit amid “huge razzmatazz”, with an entourage of 500 staff, an armour-plated limousine and a fleet of decoy helicopters.

Mr. Obama is visiting Britain for the first time and a White House cavalcade complete with armoured limousines, helicopters, 200 U.S. Secret Service staff and a six-doctor medical team will also station here during his trip, The Observer reported on Sunday.

More than 500 officials and staff will accompany Mr. Obama, along with a mass of high-tech security equipment, including the $300,000 Presidential limousine, known as ‘The Beast’ which is fitted with nigh-vision camera, reinforced steel plating, tear gas cannon and oxygen tanks, the report said.

In addition, a team from the White House kitchen will travel with the President, who will arrive here on Tuesday amid huge razzmatazz, it said.

It’s OK, Obama already made the oceans stop rising and started the Earth cooling.
