The motorcade arrived at the Captain Cook Hotel at 2:05 and we held
without seeing POTUS.

Meantime, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest offered the
following statement regarding reports that POTUS will be returning to
Columbia University next year:

"The President has long talked about his respect for Columbia
University and his desire to continue working with them.  However, at
this point no decisions have been finalized about his post-Presidency
plans."

We are holding in the motorcade awaiting the roundtable with natives.
