Pool was brought into the Oval Office at 5 pm, where President Trump was greeting several dozen leaders from Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
Trump shook hands and made small talk as the video cameras rolled and still cameras clicked.
""I don't think we've ever had this many people in the Oval Office," Trump said to laughter. "This could be a new record, forever."
After about a minute, Trump said, pointing to the pool: "Very nice people over there."
The pool was ushered out at 5:02 pm.
