Trump to Watch The Big Game in Palm Beach
In an update to an earlier story, Palm Beach Daily News reported Monday evening that according to an advisory issued by the Federal Aviation Administration, President Donald Trump will likely be visiting Mar-a-Lago this weekend. Trump is expected to arrive Friday, Feb. 1 and depart Sunday, Feb. 3.
The “VIP Movement Notification” was issued by the Federal Aviation Administration on Monday. During the President’s stay, there will be temporary flight restrictions in West Palm Beach and surrounding areas. The exact time of Air Force One’s arrive at Palm Beach International Airport remains unknown.
Trump’s last visit to Palm Beach Island was Thanksgiving weekend, more than 60 days ago. As of Monday morning, it was still unclear whether the President would be visiting Mar-a-Lago for the Super Bowl, due to a lack of official word from the White House or Federal Aviation Administration.
As a result of the government shutdown, the President not only missed excellent golf weather in Palm Beach over the past two months, but did not attend his annual New Year’s Eve party where he was supposed to walk down the red carpet. This cancellation upset many party-goers who paid extra to ring in the New Year with the commander-in-chief.

Although the weather this weekend is not looking ideal for golf at the moment, Trump will still be greeted by club members and adoring MAGA fans along the motorcade route, something he has surely missed hunkered down in the White House as the shutdown stretched on.
On Saturday, a tweet by the President cast doubt on his appearance in Palm Beach.
“21 days goes very quickly. Negotiations with Democrats will start immediately,” he tweeted. “Will not be easy to make a deal, both parties very dug in. The case for National Security has been greatly enhanced by what has been happening at the Border & through dialogue. We will build the Wall!”
Doubt also surfaced as Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi officially invited Trump to deliver the State of the Union Address next Tuesday, Feb. 5, and some wondered if speech preparations would keep the President busy in Washington this weekend.
We now know that the President will indeed be visiting Palm Beach this weekend.
