Pool was ushered into Roosevelt Room at 4:10 for POTUS meeting on tax reform efforts. Speaker Ryan was seated to right of POTUS; Leader McConnell to his left. Other members of so called "Big 6" were present at table: Senate Finance Chair Orrin Hatch, House Ways and Means Chair Kevin Brady, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, National Council of Economic Advisors Director Gary Cohn. VP Pence, Deputy Chief of Staff Rick Dearborn and Legislative Affairs Director Marc Short were also seated at table. There was a place card for Chief of Staff Kelly, but he was not seated at the table when pool was there.

POTUS appeared to read remarks from a paper in front of him going over principles and goals of tax reform efforts. Next pool report will have quotes and summary from those remarks, which lasted a little over three minutes, with some additional riffing from POTUS. POTUS was then asked and answered DACA question pool sent out in report #4. That was the only question he answered before pool was ushered out.
