President Trump flew in and it was a brief interaction on the tarmac, but it was pretty good. From watching Air Force One fly in, to seeing the president gregariously interacting with the assembled crowd, it was an absolute treat.
Not sure who that is… Looks like Secret Service. (Yes, I know It’s Senator Rounds and Governor Daugaard.)

President Trump waves from Air Force One…
…and greets the assembled dignitaries
The President comes over to meet the group of people on the tarmac..
..and very graciously stops for shaking hands, pictures…
..and even a few selfies!
And as quickly as he flew in, the President’s motorcade was off to the convention center for the main event of the day!
I have to thank everyone for the opportunity to cover the president’s arrival in South Dakota. What a fun opportunity!
