President Obama will make a stop in San Bernardino, Calif., on Friday before he travels to Hawaii for Christmas.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Wednesday the visit will mirror a trip the president took to Oregon earlier this year in the wake of a mass shooting at a community college.

While in San Bernardino, Obama will meet privately with families of victims of the mass shooting, which federal authorities are investigating as an ISIS-inspired terrorist attack.

Fourteen people were killed and 22 were injured in the shooting, carried out by Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, a couple said to have been radicalized not long ago.
