Subject: Travel pool report #14: POTUS audio on presser and Trudeau
Fellow pooler Patsy Widakuswara of VOA was one of the last of us to leave after pool was ushered out from 2 percent leader lunch.
She caught audio of POTUS mocking the news media’s reaction to canceling the presser. An unidentified attendee said to him “you’ll be in double digits for press conferences.”
“Oh. And then you know what they’ll say?” POTUS responds, “‘He didn’t do a press conference! He didn’t do a press conference!’”
POTUS then added “That was funny when I said that guy was two-faced,” referring to Trudeau.
