Trump signed the women suffrage bill at about 5:11 pm today.

The pool came into the Oval Office at about 5:09 pm. 
As we came in Trump remarked, “that was quick, you didn’t even know about this.”
Trump was seated at the resolute desk. He was surrounded by a group of women including Kellyanne Conway, Secretary Elaine Chao, Rep. Liz Cheney, and Sen. Marsha Blackburn. 
Trump declared that the law “directs the Treasury Department” to issue 400,000 one dollar silver coins “in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of women getting right to vote.”
He pointed to Cheney, who noted Wyoming was “first place on earth” where women had the right to vote. 
“Pretty good right?” Trump said. 
Trump said this would celebrate “heroes” of women’s suffrage including Susan B. Anthony, Harriet Tubman, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Ida B. Wells.
“My administration will always celebrate the immeasurable contributions of women,” Trump said. 
Trump signed the bill at about 5:11 pm. He then handed the pen back to one of the women behind him. 
“That’s a big thing,” he said to the woman. “You’ve been working on this for years. … I’m curious why wasn’t it done a long time ago.
Blackburn spoke and noted there would be “no government expenditures” on the coin with proceeds going to charitable groups.
Trump invited various women to speak. At one point he mistakenly referred to Liz Cheney as “Lynne Cheney,” the former second lady. Lynne Cheney is Liz’s mother.
Trump suggested Conway should speak. 
“She’s always very laid back and shy,” Trump said of Conway. 
Conway said it was “hard to imagine” It has “only been 100 years” since women could vote. Conway said she hoped to see a female president in our lifetimes, but she turned to Trump and said, “your victory kept that job open.” 
At about 5:18 pm the pool was ushered out. Trump ignored shouted questions about whether Rudy Giuliani was working on his behalf in Ukraine. He also ignored a question from your pooler asking which are his favorite women leaders and suffragists. 
Your pooler will ask the White House for a full list of participants in the signing and other background materials.
