Pool report #1
Daniel Halper • New York Post
January 27, 2017: 12:29 PM

Pool was ushered into Oval Office at 12:16.

Potus and PM Theresa May were standing near chairs next to the fire place. In between them stood the newly returned Winston Churchill bust.

Potus was wearing his signature dark suit and Red tie. He also had an American flag pin on.

Potus moved a lamp so reporters had a better view of the bust. "Why don't we move this?" he said.

He also said something like, this is the only shot you'll see tomorrow.

"This is the original," he said a couple times.

"It's a great honor to have Winston Churchill back," Potus said.

"It's a great honor to be here," PM May said in response.

They shook hands.

Bannon, Flynn, Kushner, Spicer were in Oval Office.

After a minute pool was ushered out.
