MR. SPICER:  Hi guys, how are you?  Hope you had a great day.  I want to start off by congratulating the five-time Super Bowl champion New England Patriots.  It was a great day for football last night.  And the President looks forward to welcoming the New England Patriots to the White House later this year.

As you know, during the weekend, the President spoke to four world leaders.  On Saturday, he spoke with Italian Prime Minister Gentiloni, during which they discussed strengthening cooperation around a large range of shared interests.  The President also agreed to attend the G7 meeting in May, where he looks forward to meeting with the Prime Minister on the sidelines.

Also on Saturday, the President spoke with Ukrainian President Poroshenko, addressing a variety of topics, including Ukraine’s long-running conflict with Russia.  They also discussed plans for an in-person meeting in the future.

MR. SPICER:  Good afternoon, everyone.  Happy Friday.  It’s another busy day here at the White House and across the Trump administration.

The first jobs report under the President’s administration was released this morning.  It’s National Wear Red Day, highlighting the importance of preventing heart disease.  It’s National Catholic Schools Week.  And the President is going to be signing some executive orders, delivering some much-needed regulatory relief to lenders and borrowers in the next few minutes.

We’re finishing up the second week here really strong.  Yesterday, another great deal was reached with Lockheed Martin for the purchase of a new lot of F35s.  Through the President’s intervention, a total of 90 planes — for a lot of 90 planes; 55 were purchased for U.S. military that added up to a total of $455 million savings for U.S. taxpayers from the previous lot, with an average cost reduction of 7.5 percent, another big win that the President has delivered on for U.S. taxpayers.

MR. SPICER:  Good afternoon.  Happy Groundhog Day.  We’ve got six more weeks of winter, apparently.  Luckily, for those of you who are going to be joining the President down to Florida this weekend, you’ll get some time to get a glimpse of summer at the “Winter White House” in Mar-a-Lago.

The President is going to start his meeting at 1:00 sharp.  You probably just saw the b-roll of folks from Harley rolling on in, literally.  So I’m going to try to keep this a little quick.

The President signed a proclamation yesterday ushering in Black History Month.  He looks forward to an engaging and informative month of events honoring the enormous contributions that African Americans have made throughout our history.
