Here is the full White House document.
MR. DEESE: Thank you, sir. We’re going go and give the press corps a moment to exit, and then we’re going to start our meeting.
Q Mr. President, can you give us a brief update on your call with European leaders on what’s happening in Ukraine today?
THE PRESIDENT: The only reason I don’t like doing this is you never report on why I’ve called a meeting. And this is really important.
I had a very, very, very good meeting. Total unanimity with all the European leaders. We’ll talk about it later.
MR. DEESE: Thank you.
Q Will you send troops to Ukraine, sir?
Q Why are sending 8,500 troops to Ukraine, possibly?
Q Will you take questions on inflation then? Do you think inflation is a political liability ahead of the midterms?
THE PRESIDENT: No, it’s a great asset. More inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.
