Out of Town Pool Report #5 St. Louis March 14, 2018

At the Boeing plant, POTUS was escorted into a hangar with two fighter jets. The first was an F/A-18 Growler and had his name emblazoned on it:
Commander-in-Chief Donald J. Trump
POTUS climbed a ladder along with Secretary Mnuchin, who arrived here separately, and Dennis Muilenburg, the Boeing CEO, to greet Steve "Bull" Schmidt, a uniformed Boeing test pilot and Navy veteran who was sitting in the cockpit. They chatted for a minute or two out of hearing range, then shook hands.
POTUS then went over to greet a group of nine Boeing fighter jet mechanics. "Great planes," he said turning to the pool. "Incredible. Great company."
When the pool called out some questions, he turned and walked away, saying, "These planes are incredible, incredible."
He is now in another hanger where he will hold a roundtable to discuss his tax cuts and economic policies. Parked behind him are an F/A-18 Super Hornet over his right shoulder and an F-15 Eagle over his left. A super-sized American flag was hung so that it would be part of the picture. He was introduced with "Hail to the Chief" playing.

White House passes this along:
