Subject: Travel Pool report #2 — arrival in Flint
AF1 landed in Flint at 11:43 am. Josh Earnest gaggled on the flight and your poolers will send a brief summary of that in another pool report shortly. He made no real news.
POTUS was greeted at the bottom of the steps of AF1 by Gov. Rick Snyder of Michigan and Mayor Karen Weaver of Flint, Senator Debbie Stabenow and some other folks.
They greeted each other and then Mayor Weaver and Gov. Snyder joined POTUS in the Beast for the ride in the motorcade to the first stop.
The WH did confirm that the following were on the flight from Andrews Rep. Debbie Dingell, Rep. Dan Kildee, EPA administrator Gina McCarthy and HHS Secretary Sylvia Burwell.
The motorcade rolled at 11:59 am and we arrived at the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan about 10 minutes later.
