A couple was caught having sex Friday night on Bingham Island, the small patch of land near President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club, that has become a popular gathering spot for protesters and supporters each time the president visits Palm Beach.

According to The Palm Beach Daily News, a 19-year-old man and 20-year-old woman were spotted by a U.S. Coast Guard patrol stationed in the Intracoastal to protect Trump and his family as they visited Palm Beach for Easter weekend.
