Subject: WH Travel Pool Report 4

After a 15-minute drive eastward to the Little Havana neighborhood of Miami, POTUS arrived at the Manuel Artime Theater, named after the leader of Brigade 2506, the group of Cubans, backed by the CIA, tried to overthrow Fidel Castro in 1961 in the Bay of Pigs invasion.

The veterans of that group endorsed Trump has year.

There are several hundred in this small theater, including several rows on the stage behind the dais.

Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart and Sen. Marco Rubio have spoken so far. At 1:19 pm, Gov. Rick Scott has just taken the podium.

The president is meeting with Cuban-American leaders during this visit, in addition to giving this speech about his Cuba policy changes.

The event is OPEN PRESS.

Misc notes:

1)    Your pooler experienced technical problems with mi-fi device, leading to the delay of pool reports on the computer. My apologies.

2)    Neither the SAO nor Michael Anton would take questions about the president’s tweets this morning, referring them to the WH press office and to the president’s outside lawyer.
