Under banners that read "Employee Involvement Stage 2," POTUS stopped in front of a massive Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft that that was still in construction, with equipment attached to it.
POTUS spoke with Governor McMaster and Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg, and the group included Kevin McCallister the commercial aircraft president and Mark Jenna VP and general manager of the Dreamliner production. POTUS then boarded steps to the aircraft with his daughter Ivanka Trump and senior advisor Jared Kushner by his side.
Gary Cohn, director of the national economic council greeted Ivanka Trump as she walked by.
"How are you doing today!?" a Boeing employee exclaimed as the group including Reince Priebus boarded the aircraft out of earshot of the pool.
Priebus was holding a brochure for the F/A-18 XT, a proposed new block of super hornets that if purchased would compete with the F-35z
