LOS ANGELES (AP) - President Barack Obama will make a quick swing through the Los Angeles area this week for a TV appearance and fundraiser.

The White House announced Tuesday that the president will arrive in Los Angeles on Air Force One Thursday.

He'll tape an appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and attend a Democratic National Committee fundraiser before staying the night and departing Friday.

Obama has made a steady stream of visits to California throughout his time in office, often to raise money from Silicon Valley and Hollywood.

The most recent trip was to the San Francisco Bay Area last month, where he spoke at a cybersecurity summit at Stanford and went to a San Francisco fundraiser that was the first of the 2016 election cycle when the Democrats will pick his proposed replacement.
