THE PRESIDENT:  So we’re going to watch the rocket launch.  There’s a 50/50 chance.  We don’t know.  Depends on weather and other things.  It’s very delicate but very amazing.  So we’re going over, and we’ll be back in a little while.  But we want to watch the rocket launch.  We’ve come a long way.  It was dead as doornails, and now it’s the most vibrant place in the world for that.  And so I look forward to it.

I guess you’re traveling with me, so maybe we’ll see you on the plane.  We have a lot of great things happening.

I think that, before I leave, I want to thank Secret Service.  They were incredible last night at the White House.  They handled that group of Antifa, or whoever they were — radical left.  They handled it very well.  They handled it very, very well.  They handled it incredibly.  And we owe a lot to Secret Service.  They’re incredible men and women.

I’ll see you on the plane.  Thank you.
