President Donald Trump landed in Anchorage this morning for refueling and standard aircraft checks, and Gov. Mike Dunleavy took the opportunity to greet the president at Air Force One.
Trump was returning from his trip to Vietnam, where he met with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, and walked away from a denuclearization deal that had been in the works for months, saying it just wasn’t ready.
“Mike, anytime you have a problem, you call me,” Trump said during his remarks to troops. He then spoke about the great job Dunleavy is doing for the state.
Air Force One landed shortly before 9:30 am and Dunleavy greeted the president and they boarded the motorcade for a private visit to a facility on base.

10:06 am update: The president is now addressing the troops.
10:18 am update: Dunleavy is riding back to the Air Force One with the president.
