President Trump
"Hello everybody, Hello everybody," Trump waved to cameras as he walked up the incline to the theater with a serious face and no signature toothy smile.

At 12:11pm he walked back down the entrance past the gates and into a side entrance at the Grand Hotel Timeo.

He reemerged from the side entrance at 12:15pm when a suburban SUV with an Italian and US flag pulled up. He waved to onlookers and then hopped into a golf cart with National Economic advisor Gary Cohn that was followed by an entourage as moved down via Teatro Greco.

Cohn clarified to your pooler Trump's comment "very bad" comment in der Spiegel article.

"He said they're very bad on trade but he doesnt have a problem with Germany. He said his dad is from germany. He 'I don't have a problem Germany, I have a problem with German trade."
