POTUS exited the residence at 12:33 pm. He walked up to press, made a statement about the economy, the "witch hunt" and Republican unity, then took several steps back to wait for the first lady. He did not take any questions.
The first lady wearing a black coat and stiletto heels joined him, and the two boarded Marine One together.
They were followed by several aides, including one carrying a bag that looked to be full of MAGA gear.
White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham was the only immediately recognizable aide to board the helicopter.
Marine One took off for JBA at 12:38 pm.
