President Trump stepped out of Marine 1 at 0948, four minutes after it had set down on the tarmac Joint Base Andrews and rolled to a stop about 50 yards ahead of Air Force 1.


The walked the 45 paces to the front of the plane and climbed the steps after waving to the press pool gathered beneath the port wing. He did not respond — or possibly may not have heard — to a shouted question about why he has so few intelligence briefings.

The fundraiser is closed press. Pool will attempt to get details of hosts, ticket price, etc. The oil rig event is open to pre-credentialed media and will be carried on the White House web site.
 
It is a three-hour flight outbound, with arrival at Midland International Air and Space Port scheduled for 1130 CDT, 1230 EDT.
 
As Trump arrived at Andrews, directly ahead of his plane was the Air Force jet that was to ferry civil rights icon John Lewis's body to Georgia for his funeral. Trump did not go to the Capitol to pay his respects to Lewis over the past two days, and did not appear to acknowledge Lewis's plane.
 
Per the Dallas Morning News’ Todd Gillman, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is flying with Trump today. 
 
We are traveling aboard the large plane, the modified Boeing 747, tail number 28000. 
 
We should be aloft shortly.
