Subject: Travel pool report No. 1 - POTUS arrives JBA

Marine One landed at Joint Base Andrews at 4:35 pm on a chilly-ish (50 degrees) Saint Patrick's Friday.

POTUS disembarked at 4:38, wearing dark overcoat. Accompanied by wife Melania and son Barron. Melania clad all in red. The Trumps headed to plane, POTUS saluted servicemembers, all walked up stairs and waved before entering AF1.

30 seconds behind were Melania's parents Viktor Knavs and Amalija Knavs. Also on board chief of staff Reince Priebus, who popped by press cabin briefly before takeoff just to say hello. He did not take questions.

Deputy Press Secretary Lindsay Walters is on the trip too.

At 4:45 pm, AF1 is rolling... headed for warmer climes - West Palm, and onward to Mar-a-Lago.
