Travel pool report No. 2 - arrival in West Palm
Linda Feldmann • The Christian Science Monitor
March 17, 2017: 07:09 PM


AF1 landed Palm Beach International airport at 6:44 pm.

POTUS and family disembarked at 6:54 pm. POTUS emerged, waved, pointed at cheering crowd as he descended, followed by Barron then Melania, who stopped and waved partway down the stairs. Next came Melania's parents, then assorted unidentified people.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross also came off the plane.

Steve Bannon was sighted on the tarmac by another pooler, but it's not clear if he flew down with us.

Motorcade started rolling at 6:58 pm. People lining route, waving American flags, taking pix and video. An "I heart Trump" sign was sighted. Blacks for Trump sign. Happy crowds, no protesters seen.

One more detail from JBA: POTUS was greeted by 89th Wing Commander Col. Eaton and his wife.
