Joint Base Andrews

April 28, 2017

Air Force One touched down at 5:20 pm.

POTUS walked down the steps 5:29 pm and immediately boarded Marine One. Helicopter lifted off at 5:33 pm.

Kellyanne Conway rode back on Air Force One. She had traveled separately to Atlanta.

A few additional details about the trip:

Your pooler lodged a complaint with White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer about the fundraiser being closed. He noted the compliant and said it was closed because it was a "private event."

A campaign aide for Karen Handel'a provided this information about the fundraiser on background:

Karen was introduced by Senator Isakson, and Karen in turn introduced President Trump. Attorney General Chris Carr emceed the event which included notable Georgia and elected officials and national Republican party officers.

The event was attended by approximately 200 people, and raised approximately $750,000.

In her remarks, Karen noted areas of agreement where she hopes to work with the President, including a replacement for Obamacare, tax reform that will include the largest middle class tax cut in history, and investing in infrastructure, particularly transportation infrastructure. There was thanks included for the first responders who handled the I-85 bridge collapse.

The President thanked the crowd for quickly unifying behind Karen, and talked about opportunities ahead for implementing his agenda.

And lastly, I understand from many of you that pool reports have been coming out of order and after long delays. The White House says the email system was down earlier, which is why the guidance did not come out last night, and could be still having trouble. Let me know if you need something that you didn't get.

Handing off to out of town.
