Out-of-town pool report #5

During an informal briefing with the pool, White House deputy press

secretary Lindsay Walters clarified that photos of POTUS with

supporters that appeared on a local network broadcast were actually

taken on Saturday.

Walters explained that POTUS saw a handful of supporters on the side

of the road Saturday holding signs for him. Staff was asked to find

them and bring them back to Mar-a-Lago.

"He wanted to thank them and invited them back. They came back and he

briefly spoke to them, thanked them and took a few photos," Walters


Separately, on background from a White House official, the White House

addressed questions that they've received about Sen. Ted Cruz

mentioning on Face the Nation that he visited Mar-a-Lago Saturday.

The White House official confirmed the visit, but said Cruz did not

meet with POTUS. Cruz met with White House staff, including Bannon and

other senior staff.

POTUS unseen today by this pooler.
