Via Press Pool

The White House summoned the press pool just after 11:20 a.m. today for what some had assumed would be a spray of President Trump’s meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. However, President Trump was instead seated beside former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.

The timing for the surprise meeting with Henry Kissinger at the White House, in the wake of the Comey’s firing, could not be more symbolic. The pool was ushered into the Oval Office at 11:26 a.m., where instead Lavrov, President Trump was seated beside former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.

President Trump, wearing a dark suit and red striped tie, said he met with Kissinger to talk “about Russia and various other matters.”

“We’re talking about Syria and I think that we’re going to do very well with respect to Syria and things are happening that are really, really, really positive,” Trump added. “We’re going to stop the killing and the death.”

President Trump said it was “an honor” to discuss the issues with Kissinger because “he’s been a friend of mine for a long time.”

President Trump then took two questions about his decision to fire James Comey as FBI director.  “Because he was not doing a good job”, explained the President.

The meeting with Kissinger was not on Trump’s public schedule today.
