The government shutdown is wreaking havoc with President Obama's schedule.
In addition to cutting back an Asia trip set for next week, the president and first lady Michelle Obama will not attend a Wednesday night awards gala hosted by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute.
It's the first time that President Obama has not attended the Hispanic Caucus event.
The White House also announced early Wednesday that Obama has scrapped trips to Malaysia and the Philippines, the last two stops of an Asia trip set for next week.
Obama still plans to leave Saturday night for a pair of economic summits in Indonesia and Brunei - at least for now.
The shutdown-era schedule could well change again.
