Travel Pool Report #16 - arrival at conference center
Michael Shear • The New York Times
May 21, 2017: 03:28 PM

At 3:20 your pool was brought in to a big anteroom in the conference center where King Salman was positioned once again in a solitary chair near the center of the room, awaiting the arrival of POTUS.

Before the arrival ceremony began the King summoned an aide to switch out of black sandals and replace them with black shoes.

The arrival ceremony began at 3:23. POTUS arrived to greet the king, who stood up to greet POTUS and then the two of them walked into another room. there was some brief small talk and some handshaking, and POTUS also greeted the deputy crown prince.

After the POTUS entrance, he was followed by his staff, including Ivanka, Jared Kushner, Dina Powell, Gary Cohn, Stephen Miller, Steve bannon, Joe Hagin.

Your pool is holding again.
