Subject: Pool #9
After the bilat, POTUS and Rivlin came out to make brief public statements about the meeting.
POTUS made a few, small, inconsequential ad libs, but stuck by enlarge to the prepared remarks distributed in pool #8. Both statements were broadcast live on television.
Afterwards, the two leaders and their wives went into a quiet, peaceful garden behind the house for a ceremonial tree-planting. We were out of earshot for that.
At 3:14 p.m., we are motorcading to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the Old City, where press will not be allowed inside.
