LOS ANGELES (AP) — President Barack Obama will meet with U.S. troops and their families Wednesday during a stop at California’s Camp Pendleton.

The White House says the president wants to thank the service members and military families for their service to their country. The visit to the sprawling Marine Corps base is Obama’s final stop on a two-day West Coast trip that included the rollout of his principles for overhauling the nation’s mortgage finance industry.

As part of his focus on housing, Obama will also answer questions from the users of Zillow, the online real estate database. Zillow CEO Spencer Rascoff will moderate the interview.

The president’s focus on housing is part of his summertime tour aimed at building public support for his economic proposals ahead of fall fiscal fights with congressional Republicans.
