Subject: Travel Pool Report # 3 - More gaggle on Russia/hacking
At 2:40 pm, the president jogged down the stairs, exchanged a few words with the greeters at the bottom of the plane then walked to a small crowd gathered on the tarmac to shake hands and exchange greetings.
Josh Earnest on the possible responses to Russia on the hacking issue :
"We obviously will ensure that our response is proportional"
"It is unlikely that our response would be announced in advance"
"The president has talked before about the significant capabilities that the US government has to both defend our systems in the United States but also carry out offensive operations in other countries"
"So there are a range of responses that are available to the president and he will consider a response that is proportional"
