Pool report #7
Breanna Edwards • Univision
February 2, 2017: 12:14 PM

Pool was escorted to the South Lawn at 11:53am where POTUS will be greeting Harley Davidson executives and union representatives. Pool is standing in front of the fountain.

With quite an entrance, 5 members rolled into the grounds on motorcycles at around 11:59 and assembled the bikes for pictures (you can see a photo attached!)

POTUS walked down to meet the Harley representatives at 12:07pm, wearing a long, dark coat against the chill. VPOTUS is also with him. POTUS and VPOTUS and started shaking hands with representatives. (another bad photo attached)

One person appeared to be identifying the types of the motorcycles to POTUS but your pooler couldn't really hear what was being said.

But POTUS could be heard saying "Made in America"

POTUS then thanked the representatives and then began to turn away. When asked if he wasn't going to take a spin on the motorcycles POTUS said something along the lines of "Boy, would you like to see me fall off one of these."

POTUS then walked back up to the WH at 12:12pm
