Subject: WH in-town pool report #14/ POTUS and FLOTUS enter
POTUS and FLOTUS came out of the Oval Office at 4.03pm.
FLOTUS said "let us take a moment to express deepest sympathies to those who have lost their loved ones to Covid-19". The guests rose and stood as FLOTUS said a prayer with POTUS standing sombrely to her right.
POTUS, wearing dark suit, white shirt and red tie, is currently speaking. "America is engaged in a fierce battle against a very terrible disease," he said. "We pray for every family stricken with grief and devastated with tragic loss. We pray for the doctors, nurses and first responders waging war with an invisible enemy."
