Q    Mr. President, have you spoken to Evan Gershkovich’s family?

THE PRESIDENT:  I tried to get them yesterday.  We missed calls.  I called them yesterday, and we missed calls.  I’m going to try them from the plane.

Q    Try them from the plane?

THE PRESIDENT:  Yeah.  Because —

Q    That’s Evan Gershkovich’s family?


Q    Anything you can say about his case?

THE PRESIDENT:  Well, you know, we’re making it real clear that it’s totally illegal what’s happening, and we declared it so.  It changes the dynamic.

Q    What’s your top priority on this trip, sir?

THE PRESIDENT:  Make sure the Irish accords and the Windsor agreement stay in place, to keep the peace.  That’s the — that’s the main thing.  And it’s look like we’re going to — keep your fingers crossed.

Q    Is your family coming with you on the trip?

THE PRESIDENT:  Just two of my family members who hadn’t been there before.

Q    And on the abortion pill ruling, what are your thoughts?

THE PRESIDENT:  My thoughts are: It’s completely out of bounds what the judge did.

Thank you.
