WH Pool Report 5
Mark Matthews • The Denver Post
January 23, 2017: 04:14 PM

Pool summoned to the Oval Office for an impromptu gathering at 4:03 p.m.

When pool entered, POTUS was seated at desk with union leaders from 3 p.m. meeting standing over his shoulder. POTUS asked them how it went and received a chorus of "excellent meeting" from those around him.

"We're going to get them working again," POTUS said.

Asked whether he'd come to any conclusions re: free trade, POTUS said "we will be discussing that."

After about two minutes for photos, and little comment, pool was ushered out.
