In March, Obama went to Cuba and met with Cuba's leaders. Then Obama went to Argentina and met with that country's leader.
In April, Obama visited Saudi Arabia and met with that country's leaders. Then he went to the United Kingdom and met the Queen and Prime Minister; then he went to Germany and met Merkel.
That's five, and we aren't even through half of one year.
In May, Obama went to Vietnam, and wouldn't you know it, he met with that country's leaders. Then over to Japan to meet with that country's leaders.
In June, a quick trip up to Canada to meet with that country's leaders.
In July, off to Poland and Spain to meet their leaders.
In September, off to China, Laos and Japan where he met with those countries' leaders. He also went to Israel, but didn't meet that country's leader, instead attending a funeral of that country's previous leader.
Then in November, Obama went to Greece, Germany, Portugal and Peru and met with many world leaders.

White House Rips Republicans As Obama Vows Veto of $3 Million Tax Cut For Millionaire
"Heaven forbid, Government let us keep our money to spend it on what we want.. Instead of his Golf Trips."= @TNVolunteer73
I love to prove you are a hypocrite by showing you your own words. President Obama went golfing 1 time a month instead of every weekend like Trump and you complained Obama was spending government money on golfing. LOL.

Some ethics lawyers say even if Trump turns over all of the profits from the Kuwait National Day party, he would still be in violation of the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits government officials from accepting "any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State."
They say all of the income from the event, not just profits, would need to be donated to the U.S. Treasury to avoid contravening the constitutional ban.
Kuwait could pay up to $60,000 for party at Trump Hotel in Washington
Can you provide a link as to when you claim congress made this change?
Comparisons: From February 22, 2017
"Trump's Family Trips Cost Taxpayers Nearly As Much In A Month As Obama's Cost In A Whole Year"
"Donald Trump's regular jaunts to his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida appear to be costing taxpayers a small fortune. The president's three trips have probably cost the federal Treasury about $10 million, the Washington Post estimates, based on an October 2016 Government Accountability Office analysis of White House travel."
"By comparison, Barack Obama's travel expenses averaged just $12.1 million during each year of his presidency. In total, Obama's eight year travel bill came to $97 million and unbelievably, Donald Trump is on pace to outspend him in less than one year. The Washington Post says "the elaborate lifestyle of America’s first family is straining the Secret Service and security officials, stirring financial and logistical concerns in several local communities, and costing far beyond what has been typical for previous presidents."
"Before he became America's commander in chief, Trump frequently criticized Obama's travel expenses on Fox News and via his Twitter account."
"President @BarackObama's vacation is costing taxpayers millions of dollars----Unbelievable!"
Thanks gaffer you just made my day... Showing you are nothing more than a partisan hack.. praising the LAZY ASSED EX POTUS that gave us the WORST 8 YEARS of economy in the post Great Depression.
