Subject: [EXTERNAL] Travel pool report #11 arrival at gala
The motorcade arrived at the convention center at 9:01 pm. We didnt see POTUS exit the motorcade.
The ride was uneventful. Dozens of people on motorbikes were backed up on nearby streets waiting for the motorcade to pass so they could go about their nights. Its drizzling here.
After arriving at the convention center, we entered another cavernous room. The PM was waiting on a long blue carpet to greet the world leaders.
POTUS entered at 9:05 pm and shook hands with the the PM. They posed for photos together. POTUS was wearing a grey button-up shirt with a band collar. The White House said it was a traditional Cambodian garment made of silk. The PM was wearing a similar garment; his was teal.
The pool was then hustled to an adjacent room where the gala is taking place. Dozens of tables with white tablecloths were set up in the room for the gala.
