THE SETTLEMENT, Anegada, BVI- Virgin Islands News Online can confirm that ex-US President Barack H. Obama and wife Michelle L. Obama have been spotted on Anegada, British Virgin Islands.

The former First Couple were seen having lunch with Billionaire Virgin Islander Sir Richard C.N. Branson and others at Cow Wreck Bar and Grill today, January 31, 2017.

The Obamas landed at the Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport, Beef Island on January 23, 2017 via a private jet belonging to Mr Branson, a story first and accurately reported by this news site.

Mr Obama and wife chose the British Virgin Islands to spend their vacation after leaving the White House after some 8 years at the helm.

The couple is staying at Moskito Island and not Necker Island as being reported by some local, regional and international press.

Following protests across the United States following President Donald J. Trump's executive order to ban citizens from seven majority-Muslim countries, as well as refugees from across the globe from entering the United States, Mr Obama weighed in on the matter on Monday January 30, 2017 in a statement through his spokesman.

Mr Obama encouraged Americans to publicly protest President Trump's highly controversial move.

        Stop trying to create confusion. You are no BVIslander. Stop hiding under cover. BVIslanders love the OBAMAS. Now, you need to catch the next plane and go home.

          I can not say I hate anyone but I don't like Obamas policies as a Christian BVIslander. Should he have citizenship in my country? Let him go through the proper channels like everyone else. Jesus is my president and Premier there is no one else but him that rules me and my thoughts. I will continue to pray for these leaders (ex-leader) of the world that they will all have a true born-again experience with Jesus Christ...(for as we know Jesus was never 'politically correct' and he died because of his righteous convictions.)

    This really doesn't make no sense to me. The media houses nor the locals have no clue the product that IS BVI, and what we have sold before the advent of facebook, emails and cell phones. Privacy, tranquility were our trademark. Now I don't know what you would call what we offer - everyone wants to be "in ting".

    What a treat for those tourists... Those lucky bastards.... On another note, Obama strikes me as the "Dr. Done Deal" type. You know, the type who likes a certain type of "friends"....

    I was watching CNN ans Orrin Hatch called the skipped vote by the Democrats "the rudest thing I've ever seen" in regards to political protocol. He must have forgotten Joe Wilson of South Carolina yelling "You lie" at Obama's State of the Union address. Or McConnell's promise to make Obama's presidency fail.

      I am not are that McConnell had anything to do with it but Obama's presidency was a complete failure.

    unofficial Anegadian love the outpost. What a way to decompress.
    Say what you all want Nature's little secret no longer a secret. I loved my secret for years. Anegada and my guinea corn and corn fish. It would be good if they come to tola but Jost Van Dyke is also relaxing. Love my land. Hold down the squabble.
