President Biden is ready for departure to Tulsa International Airport.

Greetings from a splendidly sunny JBA.

POTUS disembarked Marine One at 11:39 and boarded AF1, ready for departure to Tulsa International Airport.

Pool got a wave from President Biden but no chance to ask questions. Staff accompanying Biden off Marine One included Susan Rice, Jen O’Malley Dillon and Cedric Richmond.

We’re wheels up imminently. Flight time about 2-1/2 hours.

Principal Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre will brief during the flight. You’ll be able to follow audio of this on the White House website so pool will not cover unless there is additional material.

 

On arrival, Biden is scheduled to visit Tulsa’s Greenwood Cultural Center and meet with survivors of the racist massacre that took place in the Greenwood community 100 years ago, resulting in the deaths of hundreds and annihilation of a neighborhood popularly known as the “Black Wall Street.”

The weather in Tulsa is forecast to be in the 60s with a chance of showers.
