President Obama spends time Tuesday with one of his most prominent political rivals and some of his most fervent political supporters.

In the morning, Obama meets with House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, in the Oval Office. They are expected to discuss immigration and other legislative business.

Obama is also likely to push his proposal to increase the minimum wage, though Boehner and other Republicans oppose the move, saying it would hurt job creation.

At night, Obama delivers remarks at a meeting of Organizing for Action, the support group formed from his campaign organization.

Obama also has an economic event Tuesday afternoon, announcing creation of two new "public-private manufacturing innovation institutes." One is in his hometown of Chicago and the other is near Detroit.

The White House describes the hubs as partnerships "with the private sector to boost advanced manufacturing, strengthen our capabilities for defense, and attract the types of high-quality jobs that a growing middle class requires."

The institute in Canton, Mich., will emphasize light metal manufacturing, while the one in Chicago will focus on high-tech digital manufacturing and design.
