Marine One arrived to a sunny Joint Base Andrews at 15:52, where the small AF1 is waiting to whisk POTUS away for a 17 day vacation.

The president stepped out of the helo a few minutes later, wearing a dark suit, white shirt and red tie. He chatted with the Air Force officer as he walked along the tarmac, climbed the steps and gave a wave before boarding.

Kelly, Kushner and Schiller followed behind.

Advisor to the president Ivanka Trump was already on the plane before POTUS arrived. She was seen with a small child in arms.

We will roll shortly to Morristown, New Jersey.
