Subject: Travel pool report #7a - POTUS leaves the stage
The officials on stage were all singing the Battle Hymn of the Republic by the end of the song. When the music stopped, the crowd again burst into applause and POTUS pursed his lips and nodded in recognition.
POTUS and FLOTUS waved, then joined hands and walked off the stage to more applause at 2:32 PM local time. They were followed by the Bushes, who also held hands.
Pool is holding in the symphony center while the Obamas and Bidens meet with the families of the officers slain in last Thursday's shooting.
