Q    Mr. President, have — have you heard the Burning Man news?  Any reaction to that?
THE PRESIDENT:  Yes.  We’re in touch with the local people.  We’re paying attention.  We ought to be getting everybody out of there.  There was one death; I don’t know what the reason for the death was.
Q    What — are you looking forward to your trip next week?
THE PRESIDENT:  Yes, I am.  I’m — 
Q    What are you hoping to achieve in India and Vietnam?
THE PRESIDENT:  (Referring to fellow churchgoers.)  I’m holding people up here.  I’m holding people up.
By the way, the reason I’m here today just for one day — I know you (inaudible) I’m on vacation; I’m not.  I have no home to go to.  The Secret Service has torn my house up, in a good way, to make it secure.  So I have no place to go when I come to Delaware except here right now.  I’m only here for one day.
Q    Are you homeless?  Is that what you’re telling us?
THE PRESIDENT:  No, I’m not homeless.  I just have one home — I have a beautiful home.  But I’m down here for the day because I can’t go “home” home.
Q    What do you want to achieve in Vietnam and India?
THE PRESIDENT:  I want to — a little more coordination.  I think they both want much closer relations with the United States, and that could be very helpful.
THE PRESIDENT:  Pardon me?
Q    Have you heard that Zelenskyy has replaced his defense minister?
Q    Do you have any comment?
THE PRESIDENT:  Not publicly.
Q    Are you disappointed that President Xi is not going to the G20 (inaudible)?
THE PRESIDENT:  I am disappointed, but I’m going to get to see him.
Thank you
