Newsish: Trump likely to speak at trophy presentation ceremony.

Trump has arrived at the Presidents Cup tournament at Liberty National.

He entered the club house, a large glass and metal structure about 100 yards from the 14th green. The building has a sign that read's "Commissioner's Hospitality."

The president is scheduled to participate in the trophy ceremony, at the 14th green at the conclusion of the tournament. A White House aide said Trump is likely to say "something" at the ceremony, but she said the remarks may focus on the golf and not politics.

Pool is outside, on the course's edge.

POTUS stepped out for a few seconds onto an upper deck and waved to the gallery at the 14th green. There was no reaction from the crowd, so there is a possibility they did not notice him.
Minutes later, he offered fist pumps to people on a veranda below.

Meanwhile, Australian golfer Jason Day walked past the press pool gathered off the 14th green. Your pooler did not seek an autograph, although the temptation was there.
