Vice President Mike Pence touched down in Tallinn, Estonia at 12:58 p.m. local after an uneventful, roughly eight-hour flight.
Shortly after takeoff, chief of staff Nick Ayers came back to announce what he had just told the staff upfront — communications director Jarrod Agen has been promoted to deputy chief of staff. His portfolio, in additional to comms, will now include speechwriting, legislative affairs, outreach, and policy. The two men then chatted off the record for roughly 10 minutes.
Pence (navy suit, red tie) and his wife (cream blazer, navy slacks) deplaned, holding hands.
Per Rebecca Propp, he was greeted by Ambassador to Estonia James Melville;
Minister of Foreign Affairs Sven Mikser;
Chief of protocol Toomas Kahur;
Deputy Chief of Protocol Peeter Restsinski
Charge de affaires Marki Tihhonova-Kreek.
We are now rolling to the hotel.
