(USA TODAY) President Obama, having held Twitter town halls in the past, hits social media again Tuesday by appearing on Tumblr to talk about student loans.
During the afternoon session hosted by Tumblr Founder and CEO David Karp, Obama is answering questions from social media users "on the importance of education, college affordability, and reducing student loan debt," says the White House schedule.
Obama is making student loan debt his major theme for the week, which includes a pair of college commencement addresses in the coming days.
The president's schedule also features a tribute to the legacy of what was the Army's only segregated Latino unit.
Obama will sign a bill conferring the Congressional Gold Medal on the 65th Infantry Regiment of Puerto Rico, also known as the Borinqueneers, an all-Latino unit that operated during the first half of the 20th Century. The Borinqueneers were deactivated in 1956 as the Army de-segregated.
The president and Vice President Biden also meet this afternoon with Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel.
