Good afternoon from Joint Base Andrews. President Trump is heading to Philadelphia, PA to watch the Army Black Knights (9-2) face off against the Navy Midshipmen (3-9). Army took the W for the second time in a row last year, snagging a 14-13 late game victory over the midshipmen. Today’s game marks the 119th installment of one of America’s greatest college football rivalries.

Back to my day job ... Marine One touched down at JBA at approximately 1:25 pm. The president exited at 1:30 pm.

We are about to head out to Philadelphia. See you when we touch down.
