Subject: VPOTUS travel pool report #1 -- Andrews departure.

VPOTUS arrived at Andrews at 9:44 am eastern time this morning and quickly boarded AF2 for the flight up to NYC. we have several events today and I'll be your faithful print pooler.

Before boarding, VPOTUS took pictures with the family of a retiring Air Force pilot of Air Force 2, including two young kids and an infant, at the foot of the plane's steps. He gave the kids stuffed "champ" dogs, named after VPOTUS's own dog. At one point, VPOTUS signed a pice of paper by putting it on the father's back.

Here is background from the WH:

Milo Ward, stepson (9 years)
