PHOTOS: Inside look as Trump attends church, Mar-a-Lago Easter celebration


President Donald Trump celebrated Easter with his family this weekend in Palm Beach, attending church and Mar-a-Lago’s annual Easter egg hunt on Sunday before heading back to Washington.

The president, first lady Melania Trump, their son Barron, Trump’s daughter Tiffany and the first lady’s parents went to the 11 a.m. Easter service at the Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea, a historic church that sits a short drive from Mar-a-Lago. The president and first lady were married there in 2005, and Barron was christened there in 2006.

Parked outside Mar-a-Lago: a slew of luxury and vintage cars. From photos shared on social media and a pool report, it was unclear to whom each car belonged. Mar-a-Lago has in the past played host to rare, vintage and collector car shows
