At roughly 1:35 p.m., pool was taken along the colonnade to see briefly into the Oval Office where POTUS was on the telephone. POTUS was scheduled to speak with the King of Saudi Arabia, Salman bin Abd al-Aziz Al Saud, at that time.

POTUS was wearing a red tie and held the phone with his left hand, resting his elbow on the desk. Michael Flynn and Jared Kushner sat in the two seats directly in front of POTUS. Sean Spicer was seen briefly leaning into and speaking to Kushner.

Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon stood together off to the side. Two other unidentified men were also in the Oval Office, along with a White House photographer.

We could not hear any of the conversation. Trump did briefly wave to cameras and flash a thumbs-up.

Pool was ushered out after a few minutes, at 1:38 p.m.
