Some more detail from Faffa Food, the president took a shouted question from Mr. Mason of Reuters, who was earlier complimented by POTUS on his hair-net-under-fedora ensemble.

He asked whether there was enough money for the program.

POTUS responded “no”, adding, “we always want more and we’ve budgeted more,” going on to discuss leveraged private financing.

“There have been questions before about whether some signature initiatives can really make a difference, this is making a difference in very concrete ways,” he said, later referencing Power Africa.

Mr Mason asked a second question about whether GMOs were involved, to which POTUS responded that it wasn’t a press conference.

He joked with the pool (as mentioned we were wearing hair nets) that we didn’t get the memo about bringing a cap.
