For the third time since August, President Donald Trump visited Missouri Wednesday.

Air Force One arrived at St. Louis Lambert International Airport a few minutes ahead of schedule.

Besides media, there were about 100 people who were granted access to the tarmac waiting to catch a glimpse of the president.

Attorney General Josh Hawley greeted the president before the motorcade left for a scheduled roundtable discussion at Boeing.

The president took time to shake hands with people, including 8-year-old Isaac Malik, who also got an autograph.

"What was the most exciting part President Trump's visit?" Isaac was asked.

"When he shook my hand and he said take care," the young boy said.

Jennifer Bird also had the opportunity to shake hands with the president.

"I think the mood of the American people is really up," Jennifer Bird said. "I think there's a lot of energy, there's a lot of excitement, there's a lot of faith being restored in people and that's what we're seeing and I wanted to come and say thank you Mr. President, we appreciate your work."


After his roundtable discussion at Boeing, the president attended a fundraiser held for Attorney General Josh Hawley. Air Force One departed Lambert International Airport at 6 p.m. making the president's visit to St. Louis just short of four hours.
