On a bright, cold day, POTUS and FLOTUS emerged together from the Oval Office at 11.55am. POTUS was wearing a dark suit, white shirt and blue tie. FLOTUS was wearing a yellow coat and yellow sweater and brown leather skirt.

The couple walked a short distance across the south lawn then stopped as reporters shouted questions. POTUS stretched out his arms with palms open and smiled but did not answer or come closer. FLOTUS smiled.

The couple resumed walking. As they neared Marine One, POTUS put his arm around FLOTUS, then patted her on the back a few times. They boarded and were followed by six staff including Stephen Miller.

Marine One lifted off at 11.59am en route to Joint Base Andrews.
