EOP/WHO" , Wranglers Subject: [EXTERNAL] Travel Pool Report #5 | Center Arrival and pre-set The president entered the playground at 1:25, greeted by some gregarious children. One gave him a hug, as he kneeled to talk. Another, wearing an American flag t-shirt, pointed out parts of the playground. Some other kids stood elsewhere on the recess infrastructure, two holding a sign bidding Welcome Joe Biden with painted hand prints. The president took a picture with them. A hand-drawn poster spelling Build Back Better hung near the slide. Glitter, smiley faces, and pipe cleaners were attached. From the playground the pool could still hear protesters chanting from the curb outside. More expletives. More yelling. Also, my co-pooler pointed out more chants of Ban Title 42 from outside, perhaps suggesting it wasnt a solely Trump-supporting crowd. Were pre-set for the presidents remarks in a room with bookshelves, stuffed animals and toys. -- Noah Robertson The Christian Science Monitor XXX-XXX-XXXX The information contained in this electronic message and any attachments to this message is intended for the exclusive use of the addressee(s) and may contain confidential or privileged information.
