The President. Hello, folks. Get a good picture of all of us. We're having a wonderful time. Everything is going well. [Laughter] Anyway.

You want to—I don't have any comment to make. We're just getting started, and we'll be available at the sticks when this is over.

[At this point, several reporters spoke at once.]

Q. Anything about the border that you want to say?

The President. It's looking much better.
