September 21, 2018

Air Force One landed at Springfield-Branson National Airport at 4:37 pm, slightly ahead of schedule.

POTUS waved from the top of the stairs at 4:50 pm. He was greeted by Governor Mike Parson, Senate hopeful Josh Hawley, Sen. Roy Blunt and Rep. Billy Long. 

Hawley greeted him first with a handshake and then POTUS grabbed his arm. They all spoke on the tarmac and then POTUS walked across to a viewing pen, where more than 100 stood waiting. He signed MAGA hats and shook hands. 

The pool was situated too far to hear any conversions. He ignored shouted questions.

The flight from Las Vegas was uneventful but turbulent at times. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders came back to the press cabin to say hello.

Motorcade is rolling at 5:00 to the JQH Arena, where he will host a fundraiser and then a Make America Great Again campaign rally.
