Trump remarks during the Oval spray:

"This is a big signing, very important signing," the president said, and then read the number and title. "This is one of many that we've signed and we have many more left." Trump said his administration is "bringing back jobs big league. We're bringing them back at the plant level, we're bringing them back at the mine level. The energy jobs are coming back. You see what's going on with the stock market. They know that we know what we're doing so it's going up..."

"A lot of people going back to work now," the president said after the signing.

"We're working on Obamacare, it's going to be very soon -- right?" Trump said to Speaker Ryan. Someone behind the president responded "yes," but your pooler could not see from his vantage whether that was Ryan or someone else.
