POTUS walked from the hangar at the air station with FLOTUS, shook hands with officers at the base of the stairs, saluted and boarded AF1. We are rolling at 5:41 pm local for the flight back to Joint Base Andrews, which will conclude POTUS's first foreign trip to Saudi Arabia, Israel, Belgium and Italy.
It has been an honor to serve as your increasingly tired pooler. Have safe travels home.
