Good afternoon from Central New Jersey, where a soggy morning has given way to a pleasant, sunny day. The pool joined up with President Trump at Morristown Municipal, where Marine One landed at 439 pm, completing the first leg of presidents journey to suburban Columbus, Ohio, for this evenings rally. White House (and also the president himself, via a tweet) reports Trump was wheels up from Bedminster at 428 pm.

Trump emerged from the helo at 444 pm in a dark suit and red tie. Thumbs up to the pool. Took no questions. He boarded (mini) Air Force One a few seconds later.

Hope Hicks was spotted by other members of the pool inside the airport about an hour before our departure (your pooler was in the van at this point) and was later seen boarding AF1. Pool also saw Sarah Sanders boarding ahead of the presidents arrival.

At 445 pm AF1 is preparing for take off.
