Pool loaded motorcade at 4:17pm. POTUS was already in his limo. It appears the meeting broke abruptly.

Motorcade was rolling at 4:20pm.

After about a minute-long, uneventful ride, POTUS arrived at the Central Office of the Communist Party of Vietnam for a meeting with General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong.

We then participated in the press version of the running of the bulls as US and Vietnamese pools sprinted to the room where the meeting was being held. Lots of shoving, TV cameras and sticks jabbing your pooler.

See pool report from preset pooler Isaac Dovere on the spray.
