Air Force One landed at 1:45p at Tampa International Airport. It is a balmy 76 degrees and overcast.

President Obama exited the aircraft at 1:54p, with Rep. Kathy Castor (D), who represents the Tampa Bay area, at his side.

The president and Castor were greeted by Bob Buckhorn, mayor of Tampa (D), and Rick Kriseman, mayor of St. Petersburg (D), on the tarmac.

President Obama called Italian President Matteo Renzi on the flight, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said.

A highlight from the gaggle aboard Air Force One (more to come shortly):

As to President-elect Donald Trump's tweet about the next Air Force One plans, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said, "I'd refer to my colleagues at the Department of Defense for the particulars of the procurement contract. Some on the statistics that have been, uh, cited, shall we say, don't appear to reflect the nature of the financial agreement between Boeing and the Dep't of Defense."
