*Subject:* *[EXTERNAL] Potus travel pool 1 - motorcade to GHOP*

Good morning from Beijing, amid cool temperatures and a light haze covering the city for President Trump's fist full day of ceremony and meetings.
Pool departed the St. Regis hotel at 9:13 en route to the Great Hall of the People for the official welcome ceremony. Pooler did not see POTUS enter his travel vehicle but saw the vehicle roll. Pool spotted Rob Porter, staff secretary, Hope Hicks and Stephen Miller gathered earlier in lobby for earlier departure to the ceremony. Sarah Sanders is also attending.
The ride is expected to be brief, as the normally dense traffic has been cleared.
