President Trump Using 757?

I just saw a picture of a speech by President Trump and it appeared he flew in on the MIGHTY 757 rather than the usual 747. It appeared to be located at a secondary airport, so perhaps the MIGHTY 757's superior field performance necessitated this equipment swap. Can anybody confirm? Does this happen...

Re: Commercial Airport in Antarctica

Frozen foods last a long time. Throw it into the ice, hook a microwave up to a generator and you are good to go. Have the eskimos throw up some igloos for an overnight stay. They probably will do the housekeeping pretty cheap to. Seems like a good opportunity.
