International trips made by the President of the United States have become a valuable part of the United States' interactions with foreign nations since such trips were first made in the early 20th century. Traveling abroad is one of the many duties of the President of the United States, leading the nation's diplomatic efforts through state visits, private meetings with foreign leaders or attending international summits. These are complicated undertakings that require months of planning along with a great deal of coordination and communication.

In the 19th century, American social convention made international travel by politicians taboo. Domestic travel was regarded as a welcome opportunity for presidents to talk with the people who had elected them, but foreign travel was seen in an altogether different light. The general public did not want their president mingling with royalty, visiting grand palaces, or exchanging bows with kings and queens.[1] This taboo began to erode and break down in the early 20th century, as policy makers at the federal level began to reevaluate the nation's role in international affairs. The first international presidential trip, Theodore Roosevelt's 1906 visit to Panama, signaled a new era in how presidents conducted diplomatic relations with other countries.[2] Woodrow Wilson's trips to Europe in the Aftermath of World War I and his promotion of his own principles for world peace sealed the old taboo's fate.

Changing transportation technologies also played a role in the changing patterns of presidential travel as well. When Wilson traveled to Europe in 1919 aboard the George Washington, the voyage took nine days. Forty years later, Dwight Eisenhower made the same trip by jet in nine hours. Jet aircraft enabled American presidents to travel the globe in ways that would have been impractical if not inconceivable before.[1] While Eisenhower was the first president to travel by jet (and the first to travel via helicopter as well), the first airplane trips by a sitting president were those of Franklin D. Roosevelt. He made multiple long distance trips abroad by plane, each one an offshoot of Allied diplomatic interactions during World War II. Lyndon B. Johnson, who flew 523,000 miles aboard Air Force One while in office, made the first round-the-world presidential trip in December 1967.

The frequency and travel distance of presidential international travel has increased dramatically since George H. W. Bush became president in 1989. In 1990 the military version of the Boeing 747, the VC-25, was introduced for the use of the president. The planes have over 4,000 square feet (372 m2) of floor space, a bedroom and a shower, and enough secure communications to allow the plane to be a reasonable place to run the country. The plane is accompanied by a heavy lift aircraft that carries the helicopters and the limousines. Presidents Bill Clinton (1993–2001) and George W. Bush (2001–2009) visited 72 and 73 different countries respectively during their terms of office. All totaled, they went to 91 different countries with a combined population of 85% of the world total. President Barack Obama (2009–2017) visited 58 different countries. Presidential visits of over 10,000 miles (16,093 km) are common. A round the world trip was first done by Johnson and subsequently has been done by presidents Nixon and Bush. Trips to Europe and Asia are becoming almost routine in the 21st century.

Theodore Roosevelt[edit]

Theodore Roosevelt made one international trip during his presidency. Roosevelt was the first sitting president to travel outside the US.[3]

William Howard Taft[edit]

William Howard Taft made one international trip while president-elect and made one during his presidency.[4]

Woodrow Wilson[edit]

Woodrow Wilson made one international trip while president-elect and made two during his presidency.[5] Wilson was the first sitting president to travel to Europe. He spent nearly seven months in Europe after World War I (interrupted by a brief 9-day return stateside). He was awarded the 1919 Nobel Peace Prize for his peacemaking efforts.[6]

Warren G. Harding[edit]

Warren G. Harding made one international trip while president-elect and made one during his presidency.[7]

Calvin Coolidge[edit]

Calvin Coolidge made one international trip during his presidency.[8]

Herbert Hoover[edit]

Herbert Hoover made one international "good will" trip, to Central and South America, during the time when he was president-elect.[9] He delivered 25 speeches in 10 countries, almost all of which stressed his plans to reduce American political and military interference in Latin American affairs. In sum, he pledged that the United States would act as a "good neighbor."[10][11] While crossing the Andes from Chile, a plot to bomb Hoover's train as it crossed the vast Argentinian central plain was foiled.[12]

Franklin D. Roosevelt[edit]

Countries visited by Franklin D. Roosevelt during his presidency, 1933–45

Franklin D. Roosevelt made one international trip while president-elect and made 20 during his presidency.[13] His early travels were by ship, frequently for fishing vacations to the Bahama Banks, Canadian Maritimes or Newfoundland Island. In 1943 he became the first incumbent president to fly by airplane across the Atlantic Ocean during his secret mission to Casablanca. As a result of this trip, he also became the first president to visit North Africa while in office.

Harry S. Truman[edit]

Countries visited by Harry S. Truman during his presidency, 1945–53

Harry S. Truman made five international trips during his presidency.[14] Three months after ascending to the presidency, Truman made his only trans-Atlantic trip as president to participate in talks concerning how to administer the defeated Nazi Germany, which had agreed to unconditional surrender nine weeks earlier (V-E Day). He also visited neighboring Bermuda, Canada and Mexico, plus Brazil in South America. Truman only left the continental United States on two other occasions (to Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, Cuba, February 20-March 5, 1948; and to Wake Island, October 11–18, 1950) during his nearly eight years in office.[15]

Dwight D. Eisenhower[edit]

Countries visited by Dwight D. Eisenhower during his presidency, 1953–61

Dwight D. Eisenhower made one international trip while president-elect and made 16 during his presidency.[16] By the time he left office in 1961, Eisenhower had visited 26 countries.

In 1958, the Air Force added three Boeing 707 jets (designated SAM 970, 971, and 972), 707-153 models, into the presidential fleet. Starting in the summer of 1959 he made five major tours in one year to Europe, Southeast Asia, South America, Middle East, and Southern Asia. On his "Flight to Peace" Goodwill tour, from December 3 through 22, 1959, the President visited 11 nations including five in Asia, flying 22,000 miles in 19 days.

An official air traffic control call sign for a United States Air Force aircraft carrying the President was established for security purposes during Eisenhower's presidency. This came about following a 1953 incident where an Eastern Airlines commercial flight (8610) had the same call sign as the flight the president was on (Air Force 8610). The airliner accidentally entered the same airspace, and after the incident, the unique presidential aircraft call sign Air Force One was introduced in 1959.

John F. Kennedy[edit]

Countries visited by John F. Kennedy during his presidency, 1961–63

John F. Kennedy made eight international trips during his presidency.[17] Two of these were to Europe, and the other six were to various nations in the Western Hemisphere. His second trip to Europe included the famous speech Ich bin ein Berliner at the Berlin Wall, the visit of the first Catholic president to Vatican City, plus the visit to Kennedy's ancestral home in Ireland. First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy traveled with him on his 1961 visit to France and received such a popular reaction there that the President quipped "I am the man who accompanied Jacqueline Kennedy to Paris – and I have enjoyed it!"[18][19]

Lyndon B. Johnson[edit]

Countries visited by Lyndon B. Johnson during his presidency, 1963–69

Lyndon B. Johnson made eleven international trips during his presidency.[20] He flew 523,000 miles aboard Air Force One while in office. Eschewing Europe in favor of Southeast Asia and Latin America. One of the most unusual international trips in presidential history occurred before Christmas in 1967. The President began the trip by going to the memorial service for Australian Prime Minister Harold Holt, who had disappeared in a swimming accident and was presumed drowned. The White House did not reveal in advance to the press that the President would make the first round-the-world presidential trip. The exhausting trip was 26,959 miles completed in only 112.5 hours (4.7 days). The trip crossed the equator twice, stopped in Travis Air Force Base, Calif., then Honolulu, Pago Pago, Canberra, Melbourne, Vietnam, Karachi and Rome.

Richard Nixon[edit]

Countries visited by Richard Nixon during his presidency, 1969–74

Richard M. Nixon made fifteen international trips during his presidency.[21] He made the unusual move of going on a week-long trip to Europe only five weeks after his inauguration. Nixon's 1972 visit to China was an important strategic and diplomatic overture that marked the culmination of the Nixon administration's resumption of harmonious relations between the U.S. and China. He also made groundbreaking trips to various Communist-ruled nations as well, including: Romania (1969), Yugoslavia (1970), and the Soviet Union (1972 and 1974). In 1972 Nixon received delivery of the second custom outfitted jet to be used as Air Force One, VC-137C SAM 27000.

Gerald Ford[edit]

Countries visited by Gerald Ford during his presidency, 1974–77

Gerald Ford made seven international trips during his presidency.[22] Ford made the first visit of a sitting president to Japan, and followed it with a trip to the Republic of Korea and the Soviet Union (to attend the Vladivostok Summit).

Jimmy Carter[edit]

Countries visited by Jimmy Carter during his presidency, 1977–81

Jimmy Carter made twelve international trips during his presidency.[23] Carter was the first president to make a state visit to Sub-Saharan Africa when he went to Nigeria in 1978. His travel included five trips to Europe and one trip to Asia. He also made several trips to the Middle East to broker peace negotiations. He was awarded the 2002 Nobel Peace Prize for his peacemaking efforts.[24] In 1978 he travelled to Panama City to sign a protocol confirming exchange of documents ratifying the Panama Canal treaties.

Ronald Reagan[edit]

Countries visited by Ronald Reagan during his presidency, 1981–89

Ronald Reagan made 25 international trips during his presidency.[25] He made seven trips to continental Europe, three to Asia and one to South America. He is perhaps best remembered for his speeches at the 40th anniversary of the Normandy landings, for his impassioned speech at the Berlin Wall, his summit meetings with Mikhail Gorbachev, and riding horses with the Queen at Windsor Park.

Reagan's presidency would be transitional in international travel. During his term in office, he ordered the two special mission Boeing VC-25 that would become the new presidential transport to replace the aging Boeing 707s. Heavy lift aircraft could bring security, limousines, and helicopters. After that time, the president had access to inflight bedrooms and showers, boardrooms, and communication equipment and with refueling virtually unlimited range. Summit meetings would proliferate, and international travel would become more of a constant expectation of the presidency.

George H. W. Bush[edit]

Countries visited by George H. W. Bush during his presidency, 1989–93

George H. W. Bush made 26 international trips during his presidency.[26] He initiated the frequent international travel pace that is the hallmark of the post–Cold War presidency. He went to Europe 11 times, Asia twice, and South America once, along with a number of shorter trips during his four years in office.

Bill Clinton[edit]

Countries visited by Bill Clinton during his presidency, 1993–2001

Bill Clinton made 54 international trips to 72 different countries (in addition to visiting the West Bank and Gaza) during his presidency.[27] He made 24 trips to continental Europe, 17 to Asia, two to Africa and to Australia. His others were to nations in the Americas.

George W. Bush[edit]

Countries visited by George W. Bush during his presidency, 2001–2009

George W. Bush made 48 international trips to 73 different countries (in addition to visiting the West Bank) during his presidency.[28] He visited six continents: Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America. On one of his two trips to Sub-Saharan Africa, he visited three of the poorest countries in the world: Liberia, Rwanda, and Benin. He also made a secret trip to Iraq on Thanksgiving Day 2003 to dine with the troops. His father had made a similar visit to the U.S. troops in Saudi Arabia in 1990. On November 15–20, 2006, Bush made the third round the world presidential flight (after Johnson and Nixon) when he went to Russia, Singapore, Vietnam, and Indonesia.

Barack Obama[edit]

Countries visited by Barack Obama during his presidency, 2009–2017

Barack Obama made 52 international trips to 58 different countries (in addition to visiting the West Bank) during his presidency. He set the record as the most-traveled president for any first year in office: he took the most trips, visited the most countries, and spent the most days abroad. Obama made ten trips to 21 countries (four countries were visited twice) and was out of the U.S. a total of 37 days. The previous record holder, George H. W. Bush, took seven trips to 17 countries (one country was visited twice) over 28 days during the course of his first year in office. In December 2010, he made an unannounced trip to Afghanistan, where he visited with U.S. troops. The surprise trip came as the U.S. and NATO withdraw most of their forces from that country ahead of a year-end deadline. In November 2012 he visited Myanmar, where he bolstered the reforms undertaken by that nation's military-backed government.[29] In March 2016, he made a historic trip to Cuba to underscore the thaw in Cuba–United States relations following a 54-year rift.

Donald Trump[edit]
