Pool report #8 - POTUS departure
John Bennett • CQ Roll Call
February 1, 2017: 03:15 PM

POTUS and daughter Ivanka emerged from the Oval Office at 2:57 p.m. under cloudy skies on a chilly winter day, with Trump wearing a long, dark overcoat that was unbuttoned, allowing his signature blue tie to show. She was wearing black and blue overcoat that was buttoned, and carrying a black handbag. The first daughter had her blonde hair pulled up.

POTUS and his daughter walked slowly toward Marine One, Trump giving the pool a brief wave.

At 2:58 p.m., Ivanka boarded the executive helicopter first, followed by her father, who saluted the Marine as he started up the stairs.

At 3 p.m., the engines fired up, and two minutes later Marine One lifted off from the South Lawn.

The president's destination, at the time of this writing, was still off the record. Handing off to the out-of-town travel pool.
