Pool was led into the Oval Office at 1204. President Trump and King Abdullah were seated in wing chairs, their wives standing behind them.
After a great number of photos were taken, POTUS said:
"These are very troubled times in the Middle East. And we see what happened just recently, yesterday in Syria. Horrible. Horrible thing. Unspeakable. But I want to thank you both very much for being at the White House and we're going to have some interesting discussions."
To a question about the chemical attack in Syria:
"Terrible. Terrible. It is a terrible affront to humanity. I can tell you. Terrible."
To the question: will there any policy to deal with it?
POTUS did not respond to a shouted question about why Stephen Bannon was removed from the NSC.
Pool was ushered out at 1206.
