During his speech to @USCGAcademy today, @POTUS will discuss "challenges and threats our country faces" and the role of maritime security in protecting the US around the world, @KJP46 tells reporters on Air Force One.
Again this morning, there was a @POTUS-@netanyahu call and he told the Israeli leader that "he expected a significant de-escalation today on a path to a ceasefire," @KJP46 tells reporters on Air Force One. "Our focus has not changed."
US will continue "intense, quiet diplomatic conversations" about the Middle East, adds @KJP46.
"The outcome we want is a de-escalation and a sustainable calm," according to @KJP46.
"He wants a path to a cease-fire," replies @KJP46 to questions about whether @POTUS is calling for a cease-fire.
Replying to reporter's question, @KJP46 says #NordStream2 "pipeline is a bad deal," but ultimately it's a @StateDept report and reporters should contact it for further details. (Gaggle is then abruptly ended as Air Force One prepares to land in #RhodeIsland.)
Here's the @WhiteHouse readout of the @POTUS-@netanyahu call @KJP46 just referenced on Air Force One.
