Approx 3:44-Motorcade arrived at airport in Phoenix.
VPOTUS stopped to take pictures take with law enforcement so served as
motorcade escorts before boarding the plane.
Better transcription of the newsiest quote from remarks: “The truth is
after the President declared a national emergency, some in Congress are
trying to stop the president from exercising his legal authority to address
what is a real crisis at the southern border. We’re grateful for the
support that we received in the House of Representatives. But the majority
still passed a bill disapproving. The President’s declaration now goes to
the United States Senate. Any vote against the President’s national
emergency is a vote against border security. And we call on every member of
the Senate-and your Senators here in AZ- to stand for border security and
stand with President Trump. And uphold the President’s call for a national
emergency and additional resources to secure our border.”
Everyone on board. Taxiing at 4:04 p.m. local time. Wheels up soon.
No wi-fi on AF2 as most as you know. Next time from JBA.
